Samsung Violated Apple's 'Bounce-Back' Patent By Japan Court

A Tokyo court ruled on Friday that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd had infringed rival Apple Inc's patent for a so-called bounce-back feature on earlier models of its popular smartphones.

The world's top two smartphone makers i.e. Samsung and Apple are fighting patent disputes across the globe as they compete to dominate the profitable mobile market and win customers with their latest gadgets and products.

Apple claimed that Samsung had copied the feature, in which icons on its smartphones and tablets quiver back when users scroll to the end of an electronic document. Samsung has already changed its interface on recent models to show a blue line at the end of documents.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark office judged earlier this year that Apple's bounce-back patent was invalid. The Japanese court's decision comes after this, allowing older Samsung models that had a similar feature to remain on sale.

According to documents filed by Apple in U.S. court last week, the U.S. agency subsequently decided that several aspects of the bounce-back feature were actually patentable.
