The Wall Street Journal: Apple scores victory in iPhone patent case in China

BEIJING — A Chinese court has overturned a ruling against Apple Inc. over iPhone patents, a win for the tech giant in one of its toughest markets.

The Beijing IP Court ruled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus don’t infringe on patents for exterior smartphone design held by a defunct local manufacturer, Shenzhen Baili Marketing Services Co.

The court found Baili had no grounds to claim the exterior designs were exclusive, and that it was easy for consumers to detect the differences, according to the verdict reported by a newspaper supervised by China’s Supreme People’s Court.

“Baili has been trying to claim our work as their own and we thank the Beijing IP Court for recognizing the value of Apple’s unique and innovative design,” an Apple AAPL, -0.20% spokeswoman said in a statement Sunday.
