Apple files second ITC complaint against HTC

Apple has filed a second patent infringement claim against HTC with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). Bloomberg reports that Apple is seeking to block imports of “personal electronic devices,” although it is unclear exactly which models Apple is targeting with the complaint. Apple filed its first ITC complaint against HTC in March 2010, which claimed the company infringed on 20 Apple patents related to the iPhone’s UI, architecture, and hardware, prompting HTC to file a complaint of its own against Apple that May. In April of this year, a lawyer representing the staff of the ITC recommended that HTC shouldn’t be found liable of infringing upon Apple’s patents; the judge in that case is expected to release his findings on August 5.
