WSJ: Apple to pay $1 billion to settle lawsuit over iPhone patent
WSJ : Apple to Pay $1 Billion to Settlement Over iPhone Patent Apple’s lawsuit against the U.S. government alleges that it has not received a valid patent license for the “iPhone X” smartphone since December of 2015.
Apple’s claim in the lawsuit was that it had been granted a valid, valid and enforceable license for an “iPhone” design patent from the U;s Department of Justice, but that the U had not granted it.
The DOJ claimed that it would be willing to grant the iPhone X a valid and valid license for a design patent for any reason, including but not limited to the need to provide a new product or a service.
The DOJ also alleged that Apple had been issued a valid “license” for the iPhone 9 and iPhone X by the U and that the DOJ had issued the “license”.
Apple has also argued that it was granted a license for its “iPhone 8” design in 2015 and that it should be granted a similar license for “iPhone 9”.
The lawsuit, filed by the Justice Department on October 25, 2016, seeks to invalidate a provisional patent license granted by the DOJ in April 2018 and a final patent license in February 2019.
According to the DOJ, the “Apple patent is a new, and potentially broad, technology that relates to the design and functionality of electronic devices.”
Apple has alleged that the iPhone design patent was granted on June 10, 2018, and that Apple filed its claim in August 2017.
“The court believes that Apple’s claims are frivolous and that its claims of an invalid license for this design patent have no merit,” the DOJ said in a court filing.
“The claims in this lawsuit are baseless and without merit.”
Apple has argued that its claim for a valid design patent is valid and that a license was granted for a “device” that could have a display, a processor, a camera, an audio jack, a GPS receiver, and a camera and camera module, as well as a processor.
Apple argues that the design patent covers the iPhone 8 and 9, and also that a “iPhone design patent” is a “design patent”.
Apple is seeking an injunction to prevent the DOJ from enforcing the design license and an award of damages for infringement of the design.
The lawsuit also seeks to prevent any future DOJ enforcement action against Apple for the design of the iPhone.

Apple has filed a lawsuit in federal court in New York alleging that it is not eligible to receive the design patents granted to it by the federal government for the new products.
Apple filed the lawsuit last week in U.s District Court in Manhattan.
A spokesman for the Justice department declined to comment.
Earlier this year, Apple sued the federal judge who ruled in favor of the company in a patent infringement lawsuit against it.
At issue in the case is the patent covering “new and enhanced computing features”, the Justice spokesperson said in an emailed statement.
Apple wants the judge to reject Apple’s patent application for the claim.
The Justice Department also alleged in its lawsuit that Apple “had been issued the design rights” for an iPhone design “prior to the date of its filing” in January 2017.
The company’s patent covers “the design and function of electronic device,” and the patent was issued “in accordance with the design principles and the requirements of the International Trade Commission.”
