Apple loses 'slide to unlock' patent case

A German court has invalidated a patent held by Apple, and contested by rivals Motorola and Samsung, on its "slide to unlock" function for smartphones, AFP has reported. The federal patent court ruled that the horizontal swiping gesture was not a technical innovation in itself and therefore did not meet requirements of European patent law. Apple can still appeal the ruling.
