According to the latest reports from FOSS Patents, Apple has recently filed second complaints against HTC. Apple has asked ITC to introduce prohibition on HTC devices.
Earlier Apple has filed the initiation complaint but the grievance by Apple didn’t go in the favor of the company. Now the second complaints against HTC might determine the company patents and also they are optimists that the second protest are potentially stronger.
Three months back, ITC staff has reported that HTC does not infringe any valid Apple patents. Now the second hearing on this case has been schedule on August 5, 2011 for the initial purpose by the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ ). People are saying that ALJ will still rule in Apple favor with the staff recommendation.
The title of the complaints is called as “Portable Electronic Devices and Related Software”, and it indicates that Apple can target both HTC smartphones and tablets.
