HTC to fight Apple patent ruling

Taiwanese mobile phone company HTC has said it will appeal against a US ruling that it infringed two Apple patents.

If Friday’s ruling by the US International Trade Commission is not overturned, the US may ban imports of some HTC phones.

HTC and Apple are rivals in the smartphone market and analysts said the ruling may have industry-wide implications.

Shares in HTC fell as much as 7% on Monday following the news.

Tough battle?

The US trade commission said that HTC was guilty of violating two Apple patents when it produced mobile phones based on the Android operating system.

Apple had filed a complaint against HTC for infringing ten of their patents.

However, the findings are preliminary and are subject to review by the full six-member committee in Washington. A final decision is due on 6 December.
