“Apple has emerged victorious in yet another legal tussle pertaining to patent infringement,” Anu Passary reports for Tech Times. “The Cupertino company has won the lawsuit filed against it by ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corp.”
“ContentGuard, the digital rights management business, sued Apple for the infringement of five anti-piracy patents,” Passary reports. “On Friday, Nov. 20, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas jury decreed that Apple did not flout five DRM-related patents which were owned by ContentGuard.”
“In 2013, ContentGuard sued not only Apple but also Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Google Inc. in 2014, claiming that the companies infringed several of its anti-piracy patents, which aid in the restriction of content access only to approved users,” Passary reports. “In a different case in September 2015, a jury ruled that Google Inc. did not infringe the same five patents. Samsung too was given a clean chit in the lawsuit ContentGuard filed against the South Korean company.”
