On, no, Apple. It looks like you may be guilty of what you accused Samsung of doing: copying. A US court has ruled that the Apple iPhone infringes upon three patents owned by MobileMedia Ideas. MobileMedia Ideas is just a shell company, designed to hold and enforce Nokia's and Sony's patents.
One of the patents, US 6,441,828, is a patent for screen rotation, and was used as a reason to allow the case to proceed. Another patent found to be infringed upon by Apple is US 6253075, a patent that relates to rejecting an incoming call. US 6070068, a patent that relates to control call status, was found to be infringed upon by Apple.
Finally, US 6427078, a patent relating to transmitting a captured image to another device, was also found to be infringed upon by the iPhone. It's not clear how much damages might be for the company, though Larry Horn, CEO, said that they could be "substantial."
