Apple wins its iPhone patent appeal case

A federal appeals court has ruled that Apple has the right to block rival Samsung from using its patented inventions in its own handsets, a decision that could have major consequences for future products from the South Korean electronics maker.

Thursday’s decision is so important that Samsung had the backing of a number of major players in the tech space, including Google, HTC, LG, and Rackspace. Apple nevertheless prevailed in its appeal, in a split 2-1 decision.

This win could potentially change the entire smartphone market as we know it. Apple’s patents cover the majority of the handset experience we’ve become accustomed to.

Upholding this decision could mean very bad news for Samsung, ailing HTC, LG and any other touchscreen smartphone manufacturer.
