Apple wins latest patent dispute round with Optis

According to Pinsent Masons, the Court of Appeal’s judgement represents a 'significant victory' for Apple in its long-running dispute with Optis

Apple has successfully argued that it is not responsible for infringing a patent for technology that supports continued connectivity during mobile phone calls.

While the Court of Appeal rejected Apple’s claims that the patent owned by telecoms company Optis Cellular Technology was invalid, it accepted its case that the patent was not “essential” to a communications standard and that it had not infringed the patent.
