ITC taking another look at whether iOS devices infringe on Samsung's patents

ITC is reexamining the claims by Samsung that iOS products infringe on its patents

The patent wars are in full force. Constant lawsuits between Samsung and Apple with others thrown in the mix make for a busy legal system. Back in September, the International Trade Commission ruled that Apple's iOS devices did not infringe on any of the patents that Samsung alleged they did.

The reason behind the ITC reevaluation isn't known, but it will give Samsung another chance to inflict some pain upon rival Apple. The ITC has the ability to prevent iOS devices from being imported, if they rule that the devices infringe on Samsung's intellectual property and patents.

 

The ruling is expected to come in January. Samsung will be attempting to tip the ITC scales in its favor, but it is not clear whether or not this is something they will be able to do. The original ITC finding was the second attempt by Samsung to block iOS devices. The first was the massive Apple v Samsung lawsuit, which saw a jury finding in favor of Apple to the tune of $1 billion.
