Apple vs Samsung: US court to review patent ruling

The International Trade Commission (ITC) has decided to review a recent court ruling which found that Apple did not violate patents owned by Samsung Electronics in making the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad.

An administrative law judge, James Gildea, at the ITC had said in a preliminary ruling in September that Apple was innocent of violating the patents. The ITC, which could have opted to simply uphold the judge’s decision, said that it would take up the matter. A final decision is expected in January.

The two standard essential patents in the complaint are related to 3G wireless technology and the format of data packets for high-speed transmission.

If overturned, this could potentially mean that Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad may be banned from being sold within the United States.

Samsung is pleased that the Commission has agreed to review the initial determination in its entirety,” Samsung said in a statement. “We remain confident that the Commission will reach a final determination that affirms our position that Apple must be held accountable for free-riding on our technological innovations. We are proud of our long history of innovation in the mobile industry and will continue to defend our intellectual property rights.”

Samsung is the world’s largest smartphone maker, while Apple is in third place. Many experts consider Samsung’s Galaxy touchscreen tablets the main rival to the iPad, although they are currently a distant second to Apple’s devices.

Samsung is also a parts supplier to Apple, producing micro processors, flat screens and memory chips – both dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips and NAND memory chips – for the iPhone, iPad and iPod.

There’s no saying at this point whether the two companies will remain in good terms beyond that, given that Apple has started distributing its supply contracts to other vendors.
