ITC to Revisit Decision that Previously Cleared Apple of Infringing Samsung Patents
The U.S. International Trade Commission recently announced that it will be revisiting a September decision, where Apple’s products were found not violating certain Samsung patents. The final judgment might lead to trouble for Apple as it could lead to an injunction against the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. As noted by Reuters, the ITC is set to review a preliminary decision made by Administrative Law Judge James Gildea that found Apple’s iDevice lineup to not infringe on Samsung’s wireless patents.
The final determination is to be made by the full commission and it may overturn the judge’s findings, possibly leading to a ban of U.S. sales. The case warrants a more detailed investigation as the ITC had the option to uphold Judge Gildea’s preliminary decision.
Samsung originally filed for a ban of Apple’s allegedly infringing products in June 2011, claiming “many” of its innovations were copied by the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The technology under review was regarding patents for certain wireless technologies. Apple recently won a favorable ruling in another ITC case when Judge Thomas Pender found Samsung infringing on three of six asserted utility patents and one design property, including intellectual property for touchscreen heuristics co-invented by Steve jobs. This complaint was first filed in July 2011 is a countersuit to the Samsung’s original ITC complaint.
As of right now, the commission is scheduled to review the Samsung complaint and issue a ruling on whether it will revisit Judge Pender’s decision in January. We’ll have to wait and see what’s to come by being patient.

what’s the point of having a court system if the itc can just overturn something. Why not just have the ITC be used as the court system in the first place? cut of billion’s of dollars in lawyers and legal junk and time.

I don't care as long as they keep making great phones that we love.
Who cares who copied who. I love apple products.
Touch was invented by motorola (someone told me that on this very forum which is according to wikipedia i think).
Now if i have a fantastic product but i don't do **** about it.. someone else will clean it up and make it a fabulous product and make billions out of it. Motorola's loss or apple's gain. I'm getting to use it. frankly that's all that matters. Tomorrow Samsung overtakes apple in innovation I'll not hesitate to switch.

First Samsung DID NOT introduce the first touchscreen phone. -___- get your facts straight. Nokia introduced the first touchscreen phone using the stylus.
Second, Samsung DID NOT introduce a personal assistant software. It was the invention of the PDA (not owned by Samsung). And also, if its the first Siri-like software, wouldnt the first be Siri itself??? d u m b a s s
Third, Apple introduced MULTI-TOUCH. NOT touchscreen -____-.
Personally, I like Apple because of classy design and simple UI but Samsung has the right hardware in terms of chips and some added features. But, I dont like the fact that Apple keeps suing instead of innovating and Samsung keeps ripping off Microsoft, Apple, and HTC.
Apple MultiTouch. Then Samsung MultiTouch. (Microsoft and HTC bandwagoned. doesnt count)
HTC big screen. then Samsung Bigscreen.
iPad Mini. then GS3 mini -____-
Dell Ultrabook. then Samsung Ultrabook.
Panasonic Smart TV. then Samsung SmartTV

And Androids original concept, even after being purchased by google, was not a touchscreen. In fact, touchscreen support was not introduced until 2008. A year after iPhone release. Are those facts straight enough for you?
