'No indication' of Apple plan for Supreme Court appeal

Apple could appeal to the Supreme Court, but there is "no indication" the firm plans to do so, Darren Smyth partner at eIP, a specialist IP law firm, told Reuters.

"I expect this will be the end of the line. An appeal to the supreme court is in principle possible but there has been no indication so far that Apple plan such an appeal", he said.
