HTC: ITC postponed ruling in Apple lawsuit Trade panel delays final ruling, again.
HTC said on Tuesday that the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has postponed its final ruling in HTC's lawsuit against Apple. The ITC had scheduled a ruling for December 6, but now is expected to deliver it on Monday, December 19 instead.

The Taiwanese phone maker said there was no reason given for the extra delay in the case. HTC has failed to have injunctions put on Apple products that it claims infringe patents it holds, while it also defends itself from the same allegations.

The case has been seen as a wider dispute between Google and Apple, as some patents in question acquired by HTC from Google. Apple has long stated that Android phones simply copy the iPhone.

It has brought several manufacturers of Android-based devices to court around the world, with the highest profile cases involving Samsung Galaxy-branded tablets and smartphones.
