Report: Apple Wins ITC Patent Ruling Against Samsung

Apple has won a ruling in a case brought by Samsung, according to a U.S. International Trade Commission notice. The case was in regard to patented technology found in iOS devices.


Apple Inc. (AAPL) won a round of a U.S. International Trade Commission case brought by Samsung Electronics Co. (005930) over patented technology in the iPhone and iPad tablet computer, its second U.S. legal victory in a month over its largest smartphone competitor.

ITC Judge James Gildea said in a notice posted on the agency’s website that Apple didn’t violate Samsung’s patent rights. The judge’s findings are subject to review by the full commission, which has been given the power to block imports of products that infringe U.S. patents.

Gildea found no infringement of any of the four patents in the ITC case, and said that Samsung had not proven that it had a domestic industry that used the patents, a requirement that is unique to the trade agency.

The judge’s opinion will be public after both sides get a chance to redact confidential information.
