Whatever may be the final verdict, in such cases there is always one victim and one culprit. If you didn’t know, stealing patented technologies is a criminal offence under IP (Intellectual Property) Act.

There is one such patent case that has been going on China’s Court of Justice. The case has finally seen the verdict, which has been going on for about four years now. Meizu has won back its patent to use the mBack term referring to the multi-tasking home button present on the bottom front of the device. The physical and touch sensitive button offers various kinds of operations for navigating on the device.
