∞ ITC finds Mac OS X infringes S3 patents


Macs that have Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) graphics processing units have an implied license to the patents, the judge said. Gildea found that two other S3 patents were invalid, as were aspects of the two patents found to be infringed.

Bloomberg says OS X infringes on patents “related to graphics chips.” Is that only Nvidia graphics, because all of Apple’s computers have switched to either Intel or AMD graphics chips.
