ITC set to review the ruling on Apple and Samsung case

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013 6:45:50 by

The International Trade Commission United States will review the preliminary decision of a judge, who stated in September that Apple did not violate patents Samsung Electronics to make their models
iPod touch, iPhone and iPad.

The ITC, which simply could have chosen to ratify the decision of the judge, said they would handle the matter and it is expected that the final decision will be taken somewhere near January.

If this body finally believes that the Californian firm violated the Korean Industrial Property, may prohibit the sale of its equipment in the United states.

The ITC’s tentative ruling, the second against the interests of Samsung in the U.S., was a response to a request from the Korean giant for authorities to recognize that Apple has been infringing four of their
patents on wireless communication technology in the country.

In their ruling, the ITC judge certified that in none of the cases brought by the U.S. company Samsung had committed any irregularity, in a decision that will be reviewed by the other judges of the entity that oversees U.S.
imports, as step sentencing firm.

The legal battle between Samsung and Apple began in April last year which included reportedly 50 lawsuits in a dozen countries.

In August, a U.S. jury ruled that the South Korean firm had copied key features of the iPhone after the Californian-based company were awarded $ 1,050 million (821 million Euros) in damages.
