According to a report from Foss Patent , Apple has recently informed a US court that the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Google Now App have infringed at least five of their patents.
“Last week Apple informed the court that it intended to amend its infringement contentions in the second California patent litigation with Samsung to target the Galaxy S4,” Mueller writes for Fosspatent. “Apple has now filed the motion it announced, and it specifies five patents allegedly infringed by the S4 as well as two patents allegedly infringed by the Google Now search app.”
“[…] Apple determined that the Galaxy S4 product practices many of the same claims already asserted by Apple, and that the Galaxy S4 practices those claims in the same way as the already-accused Samsung devices.”According Meuller, the patents in question are:
Apple asserted the ‘604 patent in a preliminary injunction motion. The Federal Circuit reversed a preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Nexus and, in addition to equitable reasons, overturned Judge Koh’s claim construction in a way that affects both “Siri” patents alike (for an excellent explanation of this claim construction issue, see Patently-O’s post). Apple claims that the ‘604 and ‘959 patents are infringed even under the appeals court’s construction.
