And we should change our news feed, adding an unbiased reliable news site called "macdailynews".
Troll harder boy. GSM is one of the practically unbiased sources still available. Go under the bridge you belong to.

Jury: Apple, LG not guilty of infringing Alcatel-Lucent patents
Thursday, December 13, 2012 · 9:33 pm · 6 Comments

“Apple Inc. and LG Electronics Inc. didn’t infringe an Alcatel-Lucent SA unit’s patents for electronic devices including phones and computers, a jury said,” Bill Callahan reports for Bloomberg News.

“The verdict today came after a trial that began Nov. 27 in federal court in San Diego over a 2010 lawsuit by the Paris- based company’s Multimedia Patent Trust accusing Apple and LG Electronics of copying video-compression technology that allows data to be sent more efficiently over communications media, including the Internet and satellites, or stored on DVDs and Blu-Ray disks,” Callahan reports. “Alcatel-Lucent’s attorney, Frederick Lorig, asked jurors to award $172.3 million in royalty damages from Apple and $9.1 million from LG Electronics. Apple was accused of infringing three Alcatel-Lucent patents and LG Electronics was alleged to have infringed two of the patents.”

Callahan reports, “‘We are very pleased with the verdict,’ said Apple’s attorney, Juanita Brooks. Kristin Huguet, a spokeswoman for Apple, declined to comment.

> In reply to Manu @ 2012-12-14 18:00 from n5ym - click to readMost of the original patent cases were a little spurious in my opinion and now it's just gotten silly. We all know that many of these lawsuits have their roots in stifling competition and posturing, but now everyone is diving in just in case the slightest infringement might have occurred, even if it was accidental. It's hard now for the man on the street to recognise a genuine claim with a dodgy one.
I hope the major smartphone makers are happy now as the costs of these cases will only be pushed onto the consumer. Congratulations Apple/Samsung/insert appropriate manufacturer here.

This 'case' began in 2010 and it may be for ALL Apple iphones from the original the IP5 2010 suggest IP 3gs / IP4 so all iPhones... ooh APPLE
