A Tokyo court has ruled that Samsung infringed on Apple's patent covering a "bounce-back" feature used on the latter's smartphones and tablets.
Reuters reported Friday that Apple had alleged Samsung copied its "bounce-back" function, in which icons on 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 report noted.
The court's decision comes after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in April said Apple's patent for the "bounce-back" feature was invalid, allowing older Samsung models with a similar feature to remain on sale.
