A U.S International Trade Commission administrate law judge has ruled that Samsung violated an Apple patent pertaining to text selection on its Galaxy and Nexus-branded smartphones and tablets. The initial ruling, made by a single judge, must now be approved by the entire ITC panel before any action can be taken. If the initial ruling is upheld, the ITC may ban Samsung from importing the infringing devices into the U.S. A final decision on this particular case is expected in August. The two companies have other patent decisions pending within the ITC system, which has become a popular venue for patent litigation.

Clearly the system is more broken

Text Infringment?

Serious? I've used iPhones since 2009 and I'm pretty positive you can't choose which font you want to use. It's clear someone is getting bribed. 😲
