Patent Troll Loses Patents, $500m Apple Award In The Bin


Smartflash LLC won something of a historic judgement against Apple following its 2013 suit alleging patent infringement by the App Store in-app purchase process. Its $533m was the largest win for a patent troll.

Was because, having previously been thrown out on a technicality by an appeal court the whole case becomes irrelevant following Apple’s successful invalidation of the three patents involved.

The case is closed and Smartflash looks like toast. A good win for common sense, an all too infrequent occurrence, especially in the East Texas patent playgrounds, were trolls always do so well.
