Apple loses China patent case, separate suit against Apple continues

BEIJING: A Beijing court has ruled against Apple Inc by upholding the validity of a patent held by a Chinese company, clearing the way for the Chinese company to continue its own case against Apple for infringing intellectual property rights.  Apple had taken Shanghai-based Zhizhen Internet Technology and China’s State Intellectual Property Office to court to seek a ruling that Zhizhen’s patent rights to a speech recognition technology were invalid.

Jury awards Apple US$119 mil., says Samsung infringed patents

SAN JOSE, California — A California jury awarded Apple US$119 million — far less than it demanded — in a patent battle with Samsung over alleged copying of smartphone features, and the jury made the victory even smaller by finding that Apple illegally used one of Samsung’s patents. The verdict was a far cry from the US$2.2 billion Apple sought and the US$930 million it won in a separate 2012 trial making similar patent infringement claims against older Samsung products, most of which are no longer for sale in the United States.
