The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday rejected all 21 claims in Apple's "pinch-to-zoom" patent in a preliminary ruling after an ex parte re-examination of the patent. The USPTO ruling is a significant blow to Apple, as the patent was among those found to have been infringed by Samsung in a case that went to trial this summer. The jury awarded Apple more than $1 billion in damages in that case, but Judge Lucy Koh subsequently denied Apple's request to ban the sale of certain Samsung products, and she has not yet approved the damages amount.

Its hard to believe that Apple has lost the case, so its better to get your idea patent as soon as possible.
