ITC says HTC violating two of Apple's patents Read more: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-20079905-94/itc-says-htc-violating-two-of-apples-patents/#ixzz1SHf0PQ1l



Apple scored a legal victory today when the U.S. International Trade Commission made an initial ruling that HTC had violated two of its patents.

The ITC administrative law judge's initial determination was that HTC infringed on two of the 10 patents Apple had filed a complaint over in March 2010, according to an HTC statement. The ITC still needs to make a final ruling on the complaint. A loss carries the threat that HTC's products would be banned from coming into the U.S., and Apple only needs to get a favorable decision on one of the patents.

HTC said it would appeal the decision.

"HTC will vigorously fight these two remaining patents through an appeal before the ITC commissioners who make the final decision," said Grace Lei, general counsel for HTC. "This is only one step of many in these legal proceedings."

Andreas' Thoughts:

Apple Patents here and there? It is sort of being in a kindergarten, one complaining about the other. I guess those news will never end, Patents are nice, but there should be an end (a phone symbol to indicate that there is the telephone? Should be normal, just like the "P" to indicate Parking).
