ITC to Reexamine an Invalidated Motorola Patent
The U.S. International Trade Commission indicated recently that its six-member panel will review an initial ruling that exonerated Apple from infringing on a Motorola patent. In December, ITC Administrative Law Judge Thomas Pender invalidated a Motorola patent pertaining to proximity sensors, and dismissed several claims made by Motorola against Apple. After hearing arguments from Motorola, the ITC has agreed to review the patent in question. It will make a final ruling on the matter in April. The ITC has the power to block devices that infringe on patents from entering the U.S., and is a popular venue for technology companies to air grievances.
