Apple iPhone Violates Motorola Wi-Fi Patent
The U.S. International Trade Commission today ruled that Apple's iPhone infringes on a single Motorola Mobility patent pertaining to Wi-Fi, though it cleared Apple of violating three others. The ruling was determined by a single judge. The full ITC commission will review the judge's decision in the months to come before it could have any legal impact on Apple's iPhone. Motorola and Apple have sued one another in several jurisdictions regarding patent infringement. If the commission upholds the judge's ruling, it could prevent Apple from importing the infringing devices into the U.S.
Apple's new operating system takes a major step forward in terms of design and functionality. It greatly improves usability, while also introducing some nifty new features.

"could prevent Apple from importing the infringing devices into the U.S."
That is so wrong it's crazy. I mean, theoretically,...in the far future, in another universe, they MAY prevent it...but that won't happen. Even if Apple's main job supply is that in China, the US gov will see that Apple is an essential business and will keep them right on importing. And, even if/when they make changes, most of the devices will be already imported and Apple will change the ones prior to importing to make sure they don't have that one infractioning piece.
Either way, nothing will happen. Other than a HUGE waste of tax-payer money for companies to argue which came first: chicken or egg.
Also...what does this mean for previous devices already activated and in a customer's hands that is violating this patent? Will they have to be replaced by Apple?!
