Apple has lost a few rounds in a courtroom case pitting it against patent holder MobileMedia.
A U.S. court ruled today that the iPhone infringes on three patents held by MobileMedia, a spokesperson for the patent holder told CNET.
A document of the verdict posted on Scribd shows the jury found that Apple directly infringed on the three patents in question. The jury also ruled against Apple's attempt to have the patent claims rendered invalid.
The jury trial kicked off just last month in a case in which, a company jointly owned by Sony, Nokia, and a Denver-based outfit called MPEG LA, which licenses patents for the MPEG standards.
MobileMedia holds about 300 patents, mostly from Sony and Nokia, that can apply to just about any electronic device, including smartphones, PCs, cameras, and game consoles. The company launched its suit against Apple in July 2010, alleging that 18 of its patents were violated.Verdict
