Not Guilty: HTC, ZTE and Huawei did not infringe on camera patent says ITC
Last September, an administrative law judge made a preliminary finding that the HTC Vivid and the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE both infringed on one patent belonging to FlashPoint, while ZTE and Huawei were cleared. The ITC reviewed the prior ruling, and in a final decision the commission found that none of the companies had infringed on any FlashPoint patent.
Back in December 2011, HTC was also cleared by the ITC in another case involving alleged patent infringement of camera related patents. In that particular case, HTC's fellow defendants included RIM, LG and Nokia.

Good news for the non-infringers. Not so good news for Apples proxy.

If you look at it all of these companies are from china. Maybe it's a marketing strategy for Apple to gain market share from china. Hmmm.

Well, there's some small justice after all.

Soon Apple will be claiming that only they can sell smartphones to humans. BTW Apple is becoming a nice Law Office.
