Apple has just filed a complaint about HTC with the International Trade Commission (ITC). If successful it could see a complete ban on HTC products being sold in the USA. Apple state that HTC are illegally using patents relating to “scrolling operations”, “double-sided touch-sensitive panels” and “programmable tactile touch-screen displays”.
HTC have already responded to the action, with Grace Lei, HTC’s general counsel, stating..
HTC is dismayed that Apple has resorted to competition in the courts rather than the market place. HTC continues to vehemently deny all of Apple’s past and present claims against it and will continue to protect and defend its own intellectual property as it has already done this year.
Apple has also recently filed a complaint against Samsung.
