Apple Fails In Fight Against HTC

Steven Blum

Apple has been losing a lot of patent battles recently. On Sunday, a U.S. appeal court judge threw out the company's case against Google and now the ITC (International Trade Comission) is refusing to uphold Apple's ban on HTC devices.

Apple had asked to place an "emergency request" for a new ban to be imposed on HTC devices –including the HTC One X and Evo 4G– but the ITC isn't listening. A statement issued by the ITC explains:

"Apple has not demonstrated the propriety of temporary emergency action... the commission will not direct Customs to detain all subject HTC products because the commission does not have the information necessary to determine whether the respondents are currently violating the commission's limited exclusion order."

The ITC is still investigating whether a ban is legal but it certainly isn't speeding along the process. I'm glad to see Apple isn't having its way for once.

    Still to come the ban in USA of the nexus and apparently Samsung G S III. Why should this be upheld. Apple is getting desperate...it seems.

    I have a Sony Xperia S, it has a superior walkman to iphone and far better apps, 12mpixel camera. iPhone is overpriced and in the same league as a starter Android. sounds like a case of spitting the dummy outta pram cos they can't keep up. Tracey from Swindon.

    Apple is so desperate, they're finally offering iPhones for sale @ Boost & Virgin Mobile (its only a matter of time before other manufacturers - HTC, Samsung, Sony, etc - offer better quality non contract Android Smart Phones to alternative cellular service providers - in fact? I'm surprised that there isn't a non contract HTC ONE series available) because their limitations Apple let themselves get into haven't worked in their best interest ...
