SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Samsung will not be allowed to import certain smartphones and tablets, following a ruling by the U.S. International Trade Commission on Friday.
The commission ruled that the devices violate Apple patents. Samsung smartphones and tablets with the Android operating system are affected because Apple claimed their iOS operating system was infringed upon with regards to the iPhone and the iPad.
Friday’s ruling is part of an ongoing issue that we’ve been talking about for more than a year now. Apple had already won a $1 billion judgment against Samsung.
