Clears HTC in patent case with a former Apple subsidiary


In yet another legal battle involving Apple, the International Trade Commission has ruled that the camera technology that HTC uses does not infringe upon patents registered to ex-Apple subsidiary Flashpoint technology.

This isnt the only case both companies are involved in as while Apple battles Samsung and other mobile manufacturers, HTC is also waging its own little wars including one with IPCom which actually resulted in the barring of sales of HTC phones in Germany.

The good news is that in this case HTC is in the clear as it was proven that HTC had not infringed upon copyrights owned by former Apple-subsidiary Flashpoint technology. BGR is also reporting that Flashpoint also launched similar lawsuits against the likes of RIM, Nokia and LG, all of whom settled out of court.

    Um no as far as the latest news IPCom has requested/demanded HTC stop selling phones in Germany, the courts have not.
