It seems that Apple has won another round of the ongoing Qualcomm vs Apple dispute about alleged patent infringement. A U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) judge refused to ban Apple iPhone products from being sold in the U.S. even though he ruled that they infringed on one of Qualcomm's patents related to power management technology. "Thomas Pender, an administrative law judge at the ITC, said that "public interest factors" weighed against granting Qualcomm's request for a ban." Other judges will review the determination and Qualcomm has another pending patent case against Apple before the ITC. In a statement, Qualcomm general counsel Don Rosenberg said the company was pleased the judge did find patent infringement, but "it makes no sense to then allow infringement to continue by denying an import ban. "That goes against the ITC mandate to protect American innovators by blocking the import of infringing products," Rosenberg said. “There are many ways Apple could stop infringing our technology without affecting the public interest."
