The United States International Trade Commission issued a ruling today that bans the importing of older iPhones and iPads into the US because they were found to be violating one of Samsung's patents.
The full panel of the US International Trade Commission has decided not to overrule a previous decision by an ITC judge, who ruled Microsoft's Xbox 360 can continue to be imported into the country.
An ITC judge struck down a lawsuit by Motorola that looked to ban the Xbox 360 console from being imported into the United States due to patents on short-range wireless technology.
The International Trade Commission has sent the Motorola patent infringement case against Microsoft's Xbox 360 console back to the judge, delaying a possible US import ban on the Xbox 360.
A judge has recommended that the International Trade Commission place a ban of importing the 4 GB and 250 GB versions of the Xbox 360 S consoles into the US for violating Motorola patents.
