Apple Loses Another Round With The USPTO

Apple has lost another round with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) late yesterday. The Office ruled in against Apple regarding the a patent which covers an iPhone or iPad’s ability to tell if the user is using one or more fingers in a gesture on the screen. This does not mean Apple loses it, but they will have to submit an answer to defend why they should keep it. Samsung has notified Judge Koh of the USPTO’s rejection as the patent was used in the ongoing Apple v Samsung case. – GigaOM
