SternisheFan (2529412) writes "IDG News Service -A federal jury in Delaware has found Apple's iPhone infringes on three patents held by MobileMedia, a patent-holding company formed by Sony, Nokia and MPEG LA. The jury's verdict in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware was announced on Thursday and came after a seven-day trial and just a day of deliberations. The jury found that the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 directly infringed claims in U.S. patent 6,070,068, which was issued to Sony and covers a method for controlling the connecting state of a call, U.S. patent 6,253,075, issued to Nokia and which covers call rejection, and U.S. patent 6,427,078, also issued to Nokia and which covers a data processing device. A copy of the completed jury verdict form was seen by IDG News Service. Apple had argued that all three patents were invalid, but the jury disagreed. "We're pleased that the court found infringement on all three patents and we think that it's justified," a spokesman for MobileMedia said by phone. He said the company plans to make a more detailed statement later."
