US ITC mulls Apple and Samsung trademark dispute

Written by Nick Farrell



You can tell how this is going to go


The friend to US business, the US International Trade Commission will review a judge's decision which found that Apple did not violate patents owned by Samsung Electronics in making the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad.

An administrative law judge at the ITC ruled in September that Apple was innocent of violating the patents. To be fair the ITC could have opted to simply uphold the judge's decision, however in this case it said that it would conduct an investigation of its own.  This does mean that there is a slim hope for Samsung.  A final decision is expected in January.

If Apple is found to infringe, its devices can be banned for sale in the United States, which we cannot see as likely to happen.
