Apple Wins ITC Ruling Over Motorola

The US International Trade Commission (USITC) ruled that Apple did to infringe Motorala Mobile’s U.S. Patent No. 6,246,862, according to a report from FossPatent.

The patent in question is titled- Sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device. It relates to a proximity sensor, where a touch screen device ignores accidental touches by the user.

The final decision came after many back and forth ruling between Administrative Law Judge Pender and the Commission, the six-member decision-making body at the top of the USITC, according to the report.

“In its final decision rendered today the Commission basically just modified Judge Pender’s invalidity finding,” Mueller writes. “It disagreed with him that the aforementioned earlier-filed Motorola patent in and of itself anticipates (renders non-novel) the patent-in-suit. But it agreed with Apple on two other invalidity theories involving the same patent and found the patent obvious over the earlier-filed Motorola patent in combination with either common general knowledge or another patent.”

Google is likely to appeal this decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
