U.S. Court of Appeals dismisses a Lawsuit brought against Apple by Rembrandt Patent Innovations over iTunes Functionality
In 2014 Patently Apple posted a Patently Legal report titled "Apple's iTunes Targeted in new Patent Lawsuit." The patent troll known as Rembrandt Patent Innovations LLC used a University of Pennsylvania patent to sue Apple over their servers and other Apple electronic devices supporting iTunes functionality. The lawsuit stated that "In general, the technology at issue in the Accused Products relates to systems and methods for secure booting and recovery in an electronic device."
On Wednesday a federal appeals court upheld the dismissal of a patent infringement case brought against Apple Inc. by the patent licensing company Rembrandt IP Management.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling that Apple's iPhone and iPad do not infringe a patent owned by Rembrandt on a method for secure booting and recovery in an electronic device.
