The U.S. International Trade Commission recently indicated that it will review a decision that found Samsung guilty of infringing on four Apple patents. The initial ruling, made by one of the ITC's administrative law judges in October, is being returned to the judge for further consideration on two of the patents. One of these patents, reports Reuters, "allows the use of a headset with the smartphone while the other allows the device to show an image on a screen with a second, translucent image over it." The ITC process involves an initial ruling by a law judge, followed by a review by the full panel before any final determinations are made. In this case, the ITC is asking the judge to reexamine the initial ruling, which will then be resubmitted to the full panel for review. Apple and Samsung have legal cases pending in more than 10 countries around the world.

All of them

They should all be questioned. The courts should force Apple to innovate and compete instead of stifling innovation. Everything I hated about Microsoft's anti-competitive practices in the 90's I now hate 100 times more about Apple. They cannot become irrelevant fast enough.
Their conference call states otherwise of them becoming irrelevant. 10 million more iPhones than the 1st quarter of 2012. $13 billion in profits for a quarter.

Ok this is stupid

and so much so i decided to register instead of just reading......

Soooo as I read it, apple says you cant have a head set on the phone??/ Is that right??

thats like a car company saying you cant have wheels...

this is so stupid....1 more reason I hate the fruity bunch
Not exactly. The patent is for using a headphone and having a translucent icon over the top of an image. Kind of a useless patent really. I mean yeah I see where it could be a nice thing, but too many ways around this and too many alternative meth...
