The general news media is typically very weak when it comes to reporting technical information.

If I'm correct this only puts things right back where they were before the USPTO had stepped in. Apple is still suing it's competitors using this particular patent and those companies they've sued still have not been found guilty of infringement in a US court, altho an ITC case determined there was enough to warrant an import ban on some discontinued Samsung phones. Hardly the doom and gloom that Mueller predicts in nearly every one of his Android articles dating back years now

IMO FOSSPatents articles are prompted by his client Microsoft being outflanked by Google. It's not that he's necessarily trying to slant his stories to be pro-Apple. He'll toss an anti-Apple post in there once in a great while for good measure. No, it's that to be supportive of Microsoft every mention of Google or Android has to be in a negative light. Every. Google. Android. Mention.

You'll never find one single negative comment about Microsoft in a FOSSPatents blog. Not even one. If Android were to ever disappear you can expect him to turn on Apple next IMO.

Google "multitouch patent" and see all the results. Do you really think mainstream media sites would miss this story for over 36 hours?

This scam is a blatant attempt to push down Google shares and buy some shares in anticipation of the pop after earnings. Many readers of AppleInsider have probably lost money selling Google on the back of this "news".

A casual and quick perusal of the results and the timings show clearly that AppleInsider is the first site to carry this story. Other sites probably picked this story from AI and ran with it.

I think AI can expect a knock on their door for blatant misrepresentation. SEC looks at these things with a dim view and is definitely going to investigate this.

If you want evidence of this story being a scam, the USPTO was closed because of the Federal Shutdown for 17 days. What are the chances they will make such an announcement hours after opening after such a long break?
