Under-reported or not, it appears to be accurate:
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.
