Apple loses a court battle, and it’s good for the rest of us

Apple failed to convince a US court that security vendor Corellium infringed its copyrights.   Corellium offers a way to virtualize both iPhones and Android devices for developers and security researchers to use.    Apple tried to buy the company in 2018, and after the deal fell part, filed the lawsuit.  

Why do we care?

This we care about because of the broad implications around emulation and virtualization – if Apple had won this one, it could have far reaching copyright implications for other companies using those technologies.  Instead, we can know that the logical conclusion – that the company wasn’t selling it’s products indiscriminately and in a damaging way – helped protect the larger ecosystem.
