Apple Claiming Samsung Abusing Patents

Patents 1

sl4shd0rk (755837) writes "Good news for Apple, Bad for Samsung. Yesterday, Apple filed legal papers with the International Trade Commission citing that Samsung is misusing it's "Standards essential" patents in ways which violate antitrust law. Apple claims Samsung has violated commitments to license it's essential patents to competitors on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. Or, more Specifically "using certain patents as a basis for improper legal actions that seek to block the sale of competitors' products". Apparently, TFA says Google and Motorola are also under the same scrutiny."
