ITC Bans Sales of Older Apple Products
The International Trade Commission has banned the sale of AT&T versions of the iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPhone 4 and the AT&T versions of the iPad and iPad 2. Samsung had claimed that Apple had infringed four of its patents but the ITC held that Apple had only infringed one. According to a report from CNBC, Apple will seek to appeal this decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. This decision comes days after the White House announced its plan to crack down on patent trolls while mentioning the smartphone wars that Apple and Samsung have been at the center of.
