Apple fails in emergency ban of HTC devices

Apple fails in emergency ban of HTC devices

The ITC has denied Apple their request to ban all HTC products that are allegedly infringing on their patents.  This comes on the heels of Apple’s other ban request stating that HTC made false statements in the attempt to bypass the exclusion order issued last December.

In their recent ruling, ITC stated “Apple has not demonstrated the propriety of temporary emergency action,” later also commenting that “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 also recently began investigation to determine if HTC’s devices continue to violate the Apple patent that was the reason for the December exclusion order.  Lets hope the findings are in HTC’s favor.

The number of lawsuits Apple is launching against Android manufacturers continues to amaze me.  It’s nice to see their attempts fail sometimes.  Leave us your thoughts in the comment section below.

    Apple is not focussing on any innovations, its only waiting for court favours, please Apple competition is healthy, allow people to make the world appreciate, than fighting all the time. What’s the use of not upgrading your software to kick out HTC, they build the software to efficiency and make it two times better than yours, in the end u call it stolen software.
