The United States International Trade Commission recently said that it would review a judge’s decision from earlier this year, which cleared Apple of violating four HTC patents. An ITC judge ruled in October that Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch did not violate HTC-owned patents related to phone dialing and power management. The ITC announcement came just ahead of a decision in a separate case surrounding a complaint filed by Apple alleging that HTC’s smartphones violate several of its patents. Apple is seeking an injunction that would bar HTC from selling its infringing products in the U.S., and the ITC’s ruling is expected on Monday.
