U.S. patent office rejects Apple’s autocomplete patent claim Samsung was found to infringe

Apple has just given up its thermonuclear ambitions and practically agreed with Google’s 2011 statement that “bad software patent litigation is a wasteful war that no one can win”, but even in the U.S., the only jurisdiction in which Apple is still trying to at least collect a face-saving amount of money, there’s bad news. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has very recently rejected multiple claims of Apple’s ‘172 autocomplete patent, including claim 18, the one asserted against Samsung in the second California litigation.
