Trouble in Android land.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has upheld a key Apple multitouch patent, the so called ‘949 or Steve Jobs patent, which basically patents all multitouch gestures.

I believe that Sony, Nokia, and a few others have taken a license from Apple for using this technology, and they should be ok, but this is a serious setback for Google, Motorola, Samsung, et al, and it appears to be a final ruling.
