ITC to review Samsung v Apple

Samsung was handed a boost in its ongoing patent dispute with Apple yesterday when the US International Trade Commission (ITC) said it would review a judge’s decision earlier in the year that Apple did not copy Samsung technology in its products. The ITC has the power to ban sales of products if they are found to infringe on intellectual property, so could potentially order the iPhone and iPad to be removed from US shelves. It will report back on 14 January.
