ITC Says Apple Didn’t Violate Samsung’s Patents
Apple has prevailed over Samsung in another of the two companies’ legal battles. In a preliminary ruling issued Friday, an International Trade Commission judge found that Apple has not violated the four patents that Samsung asserted against it in 2011, denying the Korean company’s request for a sales ban on allegedly infringing products. The ruling will be reviewed by the full commission in January. Yet another blow to Samsung, which suffered a sweeping courtoom loss to Apple in August.
