Apple Scores Huge win after USPTO Confirmed that “Rubber-banding” Patent is Valid

Samsung vs Apple

According to a new report from Fosspatent, Apple has scored a major win in its ongoing battle with Samsung. The USPTO has confirmed that the rubber-banding (or “overscroll bounce” feature) of U.S. Patent No. 7,469,381 is valid.

Mueller for FossPatent states:

Apple has just informed Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California of a major breakthrough: the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has notified Apple of its intent to issue a reexamination certificate confirming four claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,469,381, the famous rubber-banding (or, as I like to call it, “overscroll bounce”) patent, including claim 19, which is the claim Apple successfully asserted at last year’s trial against Samsung.

“The ‘381 patent is one of two patents being asserted in the California case and under reexamination,” Mueller reports. “The other one that is being reexamined is the pinch-to-zoom API ‘915 patent.”
