ITC to Investigate HTC Over AAPL IP

If patent suits Apple filed against HTC in March didn’t send rival smartphone makers scrambling to review their devices for potential infringements, this certainly will. The U.S. International Trade Commission has decided to investigate Apple’s infringement claims against the Taiwanese handset maker. And it has the power to order a ban on imports of offending HTC devices if a violation is found.

That the agency has decided to investigate does not mean it has an opinion on the merits of the case. Still, the move has got to weigh heavily on HTC, which hasn’t yet even issued a formal response to Apple’s (AAPL) claims. That said, the company seems to be taking it all in stride. Said CEO Peter Chou: “It’s part of business. We need to face it and everyone can talk it through.”
