Samsung Cleared In Nvidia Patent Case

Samsung is not infringing on patents held by Nvidia, says the U.S. International Trade Commission. Nvidia filed the lawsuit more than a year ago, wherein it claimed Samsung's Exynos chips made use of Nvidia's technology without authorization or payment. Nvidia made similar claims against Qualcomm, targeting the company's Snapdragon processors. A law judge cleared Samsung of violating two of three Nvidia patents, and declared the third invalid. With an initial ruling in the books, the decision will be reviewed by the full ITC council before a final judgment is rendered. The ITC has the power to enact import bans and is often used as a venue for tech companies to play out patent-related squabbles.
