ITC set to review Apple victory over Samsung

The International Trade Commission (ITC) has decided to review a recent court ruling which found that Apple did not infringe on four Samsung patents.

An ITC judge ruled in Apple's favour in September but has decided to review the case following urging from Samsung. 

"Samsung is pleased that the Commission has agreed to review the initial determination in its entirety," Samsung said in a statement sent into V3.

"We remain confident that the Commission will reach a final determination that affirms our position that Apple must be held accountable for free-riding on our technological innovations. We are proud of our long history of innovation in the mobile industry and will continue to defend our intellectual property rights."

ITC officials will now speak with Samsung and Apple executives in an attempt to learn if the original ruling was justified. If the ruling is determined valid a committee of six ITC officials will take the case back to court.

Samsung originally filled its complaint against Apple last August. The Galaxy Note maker accused Apple of infringing four of its mobile phone patents.

By September, ITC judge James Gildea ruled against Samsung in a preliminary ruling.

Samsung said at the time that it expected the ruling to be overturned by January 2013.

The ITC case is just one of many in the global tirade of patent infringement cases that Samsung and Apple continue to be engaged in. Samsung recently added the iPhone 5 to a separate patent infringement case going on in the US.
