A new patent complaint (filed last Friday and discovered by Bloomberg today) with the International Trade Commission reveals that Apple is looking to block the sale of several HTC devices that they claim infringe on Apple patents.
This latest ITC complaint is actually Apple’s second complaint against HTC and Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents comments: “I take it that Apple is sceptical of the outcome of that ongoing ITC investigation and, therefore, wants a second try with potentially stronger patents.”
Exact details of the complaint are not yet known – we will update this post with anything news worthy if and when further details arise.
