Default ‘Steve Jobs’ Patent Invalidated by U.S Patent Office

The U.S Patent and Trademark Office declared one of Apple’s strategic patents that was at the centre of Apple v. Samsung invalid.

The patent ruled invalid by the USPTO was the ‘Steve Jobs patent’ — the master patent that covered multi touch and scrolling — which arguably defines the iOS experience. Listed by the USPTO as U.S. Patent No. 7,479,949 with Jobs, Steven, et. al as the inventor, the patent is titled “Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics.”
