The Obama administration did not veto an ITC import ban won by Apple against certain Samsung mobile devices. Read on for more details.
The International Trade Commission ruled today that a number of Samsung devices infringed on Apple design patents
The Obama administration has vetoed the ITC ban on older iPhone and iPad models that was won by Samsung in the U.S.
Google has been dealt another blow after the ITC threw out the final patent in a Motorola Mobility case against Apple.
Earlier today we told you that Samsung faces a fine of up to $15 billion in Europe and now we hear there’s even more bad news for the South Korean Android maker coming from the ITC.
Apple has obtained another victory against Google-owned Motorola, as an ITC judge found in a preliminary ruling that the iPhone maker is not violating a Motorola proximity sensor patent (U.S. Patent No. 6,246,862).
Qualcomm is not pulling its punches over the FRAND argument that Apple is currently engaged in with Samsung and Motorola. When it comes to standard-essential patents Qualcomm stated that “Apple should be embarrassed” and that its anti-injunction argument is “a total sham”.
The International Trade Commission will review an earlier decision by a judge that has ruled in favor of Apple in a patent infringement case filed by Samsung. If overturned, this could potentially mean that Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad may be banned from being sold within the United States.
We’ve had plenty of twists and turns in the Apple vs Samsung patent war over the last few months, but things have gotten crazier than ever these past couple of weeks. Sammy seemed capable to rise from its ashes despite a long string of painful defeats, but just when we were ready to celebrate a couple of meaningful wins for our Android kings, Apple hit back.
The Apple vs Android war is far from over – in fact we have updates on the various legal conflicts between Apple and the main Android device makers on a regular basis – but today we hear that Motorola/Google has decided to withdraw its second complaint against Apple that was recently filed with the International Trade Commission.
