October 17, 2011

Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- HTC Corp., the second-largest maker of mobile devices that use Google Inc.’s Android software, lost a ruling in one its two patent-infringement cases against Apple Inc. that seeks to block U.S. imports of the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

The Apple devices don’t violate HTC’s rights to four patents, U.S. International Trade Commission Judge Charles Bullock said in a notice today. The full six-member commission in Washington may choose to review the findings, which would be completed by Feb. 17, based on the agency’s schedule.
