Importation of Apple Products Will Not be Banned in the US


The US ITC has declared that Apple’s products will not be banned from importation, according to Reuters. HTC sparked the lawsuit up in early 2010 to fight off a series of attacks from Apple who is pretty much suing everyone on the planet right now. HTC has also sued Apple in other US courts, though, so their hopes of getting the bitten fruit off of store shelves remain alive (even if their chances are slim).

The patents HTC used against Apple in this particular case are the ones they “acquired” (likely through a cheap or free licensing deal) a while back. HTC obtained 9 in all, four of which are being used here. The rest of the patents are being used in other cases. We still have no clue what the patents cover. Just a quick update for what seems to be a very long fight.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
