USITC ruled HTC infringed two Apple patents
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On July 16, 2010, the US International Trade Commission (USITC) ruled that HTC infringed Apple's patents after the company filed a complaint against Apple relating to cell phones using Android operating systems. A year prior, Apple had filed suits against HTC alleging patent infringement in the US District Court for the District of Delaware. The claims followed another claim filed by Apple against Samsung, intended to bar importation of smartphones and tablets made by the corporation. Samsung had previously filed a similar complaint seeking to prevent Apple from importing their own products including iPads and iPhones.
