Samsung-Vs.-AppleAnother Apple vs Samsung trial ended in Japan, this time in favor of the iPhone maker. Apparently Samsung infringed the ‘bounce back’ feature that comes with Apple’s devices.

The bounce back function is the one that makes icons on smartphones and tablets quiver back when reaching the end of a document. Samsung already changed that feature in newer device with a blue line that lights up.

DID YOU KNOW? Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Apparently the US Patent and Trademark Office already declared Apple’s patent invalid back in April and Samsung was allowed to use the bounce back feature on its older models. Again we can see the difference between the legal systems in such different countries. How can the patent be valid in one country but not in another. Interestingly enough, now Samsung will probably be put to remove the devices that use this feature out form sale.
