U.S. Trade Agency to Review Apple’s Patent Victory Over HTC

In a recent development reported by Bloomberg, the International Trade Commission (ITC) is set to reevaluate a prior ruling which found HTC guilty of infringing upon two of Apple’s patents. This six-member panel has the authority to either reverse or uphold the initial findings.

Should the decision be maintained, it could potentially result in a prohibition on the sale of HTC’s Android-powered devices within the United States.

The patents in question pertain to the transmission of data and the recognition of telephone numbers within emails. While HTC was cleared of infringement on two additional patents related to object-oriented programming, the company has expressed satisfaction over the decision to revisit the case.

The final verdict from the commission is expected by December 6.
