In a patent infringement suit that Unwired Planet brought against Apple and Research in Motion—for the infringement of three patents on a data communications network that included communications between a mobile device and a network server—a federal district court properly construed the claim term “mobile device” as “a portable wireless two-way communication device that does not contain a computer module,” the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled (Openwave Systems, Inc. v. Apple Inc., December 15, 2015, O’Malley, K.). The district court’s judgment of non-infringement, which was based on that construction, was therefore affirmed.

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
