HTC, Huawei, ZTE Cleared In ITC Patent Case
The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that HTC, Huawei, and ZTE did not infringe on camera-related patents owned by FlashPoint. The ruling was a review of an initial decision made by an administrative law judge last year.

Companies often use the ITC to try patent cases as the agency has the power to ban sales of products found guilty of violating intellectual property.
