Samsung denied Supreme Court appeal for slide-to-unlock patent case

Samsung denied Supreme Court appeal for slide-to-unlock patent case

Three years since then, the US Supreme Court has now finally now shut down the appeal made by Samsung challenging the patent infringement.

Among the patents was the slide-to-unlock feature.

Apple claimed that Samsung had infringed on its patent by copying the feature in their Galaxy S lineup of phones.

The order of a lower court that Samsung pay Apple $119.6 million in damages for multiple infringements therefore stands.

One of Apple's patent disputes with Samsung has finally come to a close, with the US Supreme Court turning down Samsung's appeal in the Dollars 120 million slide-to-unlock patent infringement case. This particular one covers the Cupertino-based brand's slide-to-unlock, autocorrect, and quick links patent.

Twitter bans ads from two Russian media outlets, cites election meddling
Facebook and Google did not immediately respond to questions about whether they would limit Russian Federation media ad spending. When asked for its reaction, Sputnik said that it "has never used advertising on Twitter ".

Appealing to the Supreme Court, Samsung said that the patent court's judges did not follow proper procedure in reviving the verdict because they made the decision without considering additional legal papers or hearing oral arguments.

But here's the amusing part: all the original phones involved in the battle have already been phased out of protection. An appeals panel overturned that verdict, but the full appellate panel reinstated the award in October 2016 by a vote of 8-3.

A week later, Apple asked a US court to force Samsung to cough up $180 million more. However the highest court in the land apparently did not want to do anything with this case and as of Monday officially declined to hear it.

The company also said that even though one of the patent's involved in the case has been invalidated by the courts, "today's decision allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace". Although Apple is now reducing its reliance on Samsung components for its iPhones. Apple Inc is expected to report a 1.3 percent increase in iPhone sales in the holiday quarter, its slowest ever and a far cry from the double-digit growth investors have come to expect.
