HTC gets stay of injunction in U.K. appeals court, blocking HTC One mini ban
It's not like the governor granting a last second stay of execution for a death row inmate, but Taiwan based manufacturer HTC has won a stay against an injunction in a U.K. appeals court. The stay prevents a sales ban in the U.K. against the HTC One mini from continuing, so that HTC has time to appeal the ruling made earlier this month. That court found that the HTC One mini was equipped with a component that infringed on a patent owned by Nokia. The HTC One, which has the same component, also was found to have infringed on Nokia's patent, but HTC was given an immediate stay on any ban on its flagship Android model.

HTC says that it will continue to "aggressively appeal" the original decision while at the same time, trying to come up with a workaround through the use of alternate vendors. For those in the U.K. who wanted the HTC One mini for the holidays, you should soon find the phone available again soon.

If they infringed on someone's patents they should be ban. This is no better than what Obama did for apple.
