/// Apple’s Bid for Emergency Ban on HTC Android Phones Bounced
After a week of back -to- back courtroom victories against Samsung, culminating in the upholding of an injunction against U.S. sales of the company’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, Apple has finally been handed a legal defeat, but it’s a minor one. The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has refused to grant Apple’s request for an emergency ban on pretty much any HTC smartphone and tablet running Google’s Android operating system. Apple requested that ban in early June, alleging 29 HTC smartphones infringe its ’647 “data tapping” patent and arguing that their continued importation into the U.S. will cause it substantial harm. But evidently the ITC feels that it doesn’t have the necessary information to make that call.
