ITC bans several older Samsung phones and tablets

Posted on Saturday, August 10 2013 @ 14:40:57 CEST by

The legal war between Apple and Samsung continues to rage on, and this time it's Apple that scored a victory. In Washington, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Samsung infringed on two of Apple's patents; a broad touchscreen patent about the processing of swipe movements and a patent related to 3.5mm headset recognition circuitry.

As a result, the ITC decided to issue an import ban on several of Samsung's phones and tablets. It seems it are primarily devices from 2010 and 2011 that are impacted by the ban, including the Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S 4G.

The ban will go into effect within 60 days unless it gets vetoed by the President Obama. Earlier this month the Obama administration surprised everyone by deciding to veto the ITC's ruling to ban some of Apple's older iPhone and iPad products for violating Samsung patents, a rare move that hadn't occured since 1987.
