"We now intend to ask the full commission (which is made up of six commissioners) to review this initial determination and to confirm the previous judgment of the U.S. Patent Office ? that the third patent is valid. If they agree, the ITC would issue an order that would preclude Samsung from importing into the U.S. infringing Samsung mobile devices and smart TVs.on, which will make a final decision on the dispute in February," Nvidia said.
Nvidia filed a complaint against Samsung and Qualcomm at the ITC last year. At the same time, Nvidia sued the companies in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware. Nvidia accused Samsung and San Diego-based Qualcomm of using its patents on graphics chip technology without permission or compensation.
Samsung countersued Nvidia last November in federal court in Virginia, also alleging patent infringement.
