  • HTC Requests Ban of iPhone, iPad, iPod Sales in the US



    On Wednesday, HTC Corp revealed that it filed a patent infringement case against Apple and, in the process, requested from the U.S. International Trade Commission an immediate ban on U.S. sales of Apple's entire fleet of popular iDevices - iPhones, iPads and iPods. As it stands, the move by HTC comes as a legal reaction to Apple's patent infringement suit against HTC in March.

    At that time, Apple accused HTC of violating nearly two dozen patent infringements.

    According to the breaking report from Reuters, HTC is specifically accusing Apple of "infringing five HTC patents." It should be noted, however, that HTC did not cite which patents Apple violated. What HTC did make clear, of course, is the company's adamant request that the importation and sales of iPods, iPhones, and iPads be halted.

    This move on the part of HTC is simply the latest legal stunt pulled in the ongoing struggle between Apple and its much smaller, but still sizable rival. "We are taking this action against Apple to protect our intellectual property, our industry partners, and most importantly, our customers that use HTC phones," Jason Mackenzie, HTC's VP for North America pronounced in a statement.

    Apple isn't commenting on the suit or on HTC's substantial request to block sales of Cupertino's red hot products.

      Apple are being stupid by suing HTC, it's not like HTC to infringe on Apple's patents seeing as they pay Microsoft and I bet Apple are probably infringing on some on MS's WM patents...

      This guy has his head up his own azz get with it who was the first ot launch a touchscreen device Apple so everyone following suite is taking a bite of the Big Apple. If anyone is stealing from htc is the developers taking there apps from droid to the AppStore and windows mobile come on the only place I see windows mobile phones is at metro pcs stores and there priced at 300.00 to 350.00$. Just put that extra 50.00$ with it and get an iPhone plus all the other smart phones are dinosaurs next to the iPhone and the next iPhone HD thanks.

      Jonnydopehead is on dope check out the smart phones before 07 the launch of the first iPhone they were big heavy bulkey paper weights. Before the iPhone I had the motorola sliver which let me transfer and play my iTunes songs on my phone now palm windows mobile blackberry are hanging from the balls of of the giant Apple. Get htc's stick out your mouth dope head.

      Nokia owns the euro market you must be stupid look at the world and see what there using or want the iPhone the market is up for grabs and apple is a giant among others. When you look on the uk sights they're using apple iPhones is I were the comp I would spread rumors and fake a law suit too all in the name of money which apple is raking the doe in even in china they prefer iPhone or the iPhone clone so think about that apple haters.
