New... Apple iPhone patent violated by Samsung, US trade court rules

Samsung violated two of Apple's iPhone patents and must end US import of some of its products, the top US trade court ruled Friday as the smartphone giants clashed once more in court.

In a mixed ruling the International Trade Commission (ITC) found that Samsung had unfairly used Apple technology in some of its devices. It issued cease and desist orders banning further imports of some Samsung products. But the ITC dismissed four other claims made by Apple.

The verdict came as Apple asked an appeal court to force Samsung to stop using iPhone features that a jury had declared to be in violation its patents.

In the latest salvoes in the long running battle between the world's top two smartphone manufacturers, Apple is seeking to overturn a court order that allows Samsung to continue to sell products that use the disputed patents.
