Yesterday the ITC ruled with Apple in its case against HTC, a ruling that will ban the sale of many HTC devices as they are starting in April of next year. The IT delayed the ban until April in order for HTC to have the opportunity to change its devices so they no longer infringe on Apple’s patents, and it seems HTC has plans to do just that.
In a statement today HTC claimed the ruling was “an actual victory for HTC” because it had only been found in violation of one of the 10 patents involved in the suit. “Since the infringing elements identified by the ITC involve and impact only a very minimal part of the user interface, we will remove it as soon as possible and sell non-infringing products,”
