ITC Preliminary Ruling Favors Apple in Nokia Patent Dispute

Lora Bentley

In the ongoing war between Apple and Nokia over patents relating to smartphone technology, Apple now has an edge. Reuters reports International Trade Commission Judge James Gildea ruled Apple has not infringed the Nokia patents at issue in the case.

 

Nokia filed the ITC complaint in 2009, asking the commission to bar imports of Apple's iPhone 3GS and iPod Nano devices, among others. Now that Gildea has rendered his preliminary decision, Reuters says, the entire panel must decide whether to accept or reject that decision as its official ruling in the matter. That decision should be made by Aug. 1.

 

Until then, all Nokia can do is wait, a company spokesperson said. Separate suits have been filed in federal court seeking monetary damages for the alleged infringement.
