Samsung has been found not to have infringed on patents owned by NVIDIA by the US International Trade Commission.
On Friday the ITC ruled that Samsung did not infringe on two patents owned by NVIDIA, the company was found to infringe on a third patent, although this was ruled invalid.
The ruling came from Judge Thomas Pender and it now needs to be reviewed by the full Commission, NVIDIA thinks this may help their case.
Nvidia spokesman Robert Sherbin said the ruling will be reviewed by the full commission, which will make a final decision on the dispute in February. “We remain confident in our case,” he said.
NVIDIA originally filed the complaint with the ITC against Samsung in September of last year and they were looking to stop Samsung from importing devices into the US which may have infringed on their patents.
It will be interesting to see what happens when the case goes in front of the full International Trade Commission, this is expected to happen next February.
