The thing Im kind of interested in is Samsung's response to this, they have backing for a rebuttal if this follows through. Not to mention the pending LTE lawsuits filed by Samsung. When it rains it pours...
If this is upheld it will open Apple up to BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS in damage lawsuits and repayment of money received due to their litigation. Apple would be liable to pay back every penny they got from other companies, plus massive damages, for anything related to this Patent, which is a lot, it is a massive patent. You think investors are going to be happy if Apple has to pay back tens of billions?
For the sake of A LOT of people who work for Apple in some capacity, I hope it is upheld, but Apple can settle with the companies they went after, apologize, and the industry moves on taking it as a learning experience. The last thing I would want to see is Apple having to can a bunch of employees due to massive losses.......
Which I don't think would happen considering their $100 billion stack o cash!
