Apple iPhone and iPad could be banned in U.S.
The ‘magical Karma’ ooh, is that a new product from Apple –apparently yes, this new product might end Apple’s iPhone-iPad market in the United States.
If ITC takes certain steps following a review of an April ruling on a patent infringement case involving Motorola Mobility against the Cupertino-giant that could end up with a U.S. ban on the aforementioned Apple devices. That’s a sweet revenge considering it was Apple allegedly behind the ITC exclusion order that kept a couple of high-end Android phones from entering the U.S. which have ultimately damaged the manufacturer’s sales and reputation. These Android phones weren’t Motorola Mobility handsets, however, the company is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Google.
“The review is happening because both Apple and Motorola Mobility have filed petitions relating to claim construction, validity and infringement and Apple is trying to use FRAND licensing policies to argue that the patent at issue should not even be enforced. Apple has received some support from other companies about the FRAND issue and tech giants like Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Nokia and Verizon have sent letters to the ITC supporting the Cupertino based firm’s position.”
