ITC Rules In Favor Of Apple In HTC Patent Litigation

The U.S. International Trade Commission, in a notice, said it has terminated an investigation against Apple Inc. (AAPL), stating that the Smartphone maker did not infringe patented technology held by Taiwan-based mobile handset maker HTC Corp.(HTCXF.PK).

The commission instituted this investigation on June 17, 2010, based on a complaint filed by HTC.

The complaint alleged violations of the Tariff Act of 1930 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and sale within the United States after importation of certain portable electronic devices and related software by reason of infringement of various claims of certain patents.

On October 17, 2011, an administrative law judge issued a final initial determination, finding no violation of section 337 by Apple.

"Having examined the record of this investigation, including the administrative law judge's final initial determination, the Commission has determined that there is no violation of section 337," ITC said in its ruling.
