ITC Judge Finds Apple Didn't Violate Samsung Patents

An administrative law judge with the U.S International Trade Commission has exonerated Apple from infringing on four separate Samsung patents. Samsung alleged that Apple violated four of its patents pertaining to smartphone technologies, two of which are deemed standard essential. The law judge's initial ruling will need to be verified by the entire ITC panel. Administrative Law Judge E. James Gildea also noted that "no domestic industry exists for any of the four patents." According to FOSS Patents, the domestic industry requirement is "indispensable for ITC complainants." In other words, if there is no domestic industry related to the patents, Samsung cannot convince the ITC to ban any of Apple's products. Samsung can request that the six-member ITC panel review the initial ruling throughly before making the judgement final.
