USPTO Invalidates Key Apple Multitouch Patent — For Now

Earlier this week, the USPTO tentatively declared invalid U.S. Patent No. 7,479,949 — the so-called “Steve Jobs patent” — rejecting all 20 of its claims. The USPTO’s decision is not final; this is just a preliminary ruling. Still, it’s clearly unwelcome news for Apple.
