Apple has gone back to the International Trade Commission with a fresh complaint that claims the HTC workaround that let its Android widgets clear US customs is a bunch of baloney and that HTC is still infringing Apple's data tapping patent.
The ITC enjoined some HTC imports into the US effective April 16 and customs seized a couple of shipments until it was persuaded HTC had changed the code in two new phones.
Apple, which has pictures that allegedly prove its point, has asked for an emergency hearing and enforcement against 29 HTC devices.
FOSS Patents says "there can be a genuine dispute over whether HTC's new implementation of the feature still falls within the scope of the patent. HTC apparently believes that it doesn't, while Apple believes that it does. The ITC will now have to evaluate the technology found in HTC's current products."
Motorola is charged with infringing the same patent in a case that goes to trial next week in Chicago.
