A funny ironic twist

September 27, 2013

Mikey Campbell writes for AppleInsider:

According to court reports from FOSS Patents‘ Florian Mueller, the Bundespatentgericht, or Federal Patent Court of Germany, declared Apple’s EP2059868 patent for a “Portable electronic device for photo management,” covering a specific utilization of Apple’s “bounce-back” user interface effect, invalid due to prior art.

That prior art came from Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, who demonstrated the technology described in the patent during a 2007 keynote where the first generation iPhone was officially unveiled.

Those fools at the¬†Bundespatentgericht, it’s just a small setback for Apple though.
