Apple's Motion for a Preliminary Injunction, Court's Denial, and Federal Circuit Appellate Opinion:

Transition Between D’087 and ‘381

Given the structure of both Apple’s motion and the district court’s denial, normally we would follow the discussion of the D’087 patent with a discussion of the D’889 preliminary injunction analysis. However, since the D’889 patent would eventually go on to be basis for the injunction that Apple received, the discussion of the D’889 patent will be much more complicated and in depth. So, we have chosen to discuss the ‘381 patent first and then move on to the D’889.
The ‘381 patent is a utility patent for software. It claims, “a method for scrolling on a touch-screen device” (Court Order Denying Motion for Preliminary Injunction at 50). Apple alleged that all four of the accused devices that it sought to enjoin (the Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, Droid Charge and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet) infringed on multiple ‘381 patent claims.
