Apple Watch Violates AliveCor Patents, Import Ban on Hold, Says US ITC

Trending News

Apple Watches with an electrocardiogram (ECG) function infringe patents belonging to medical device maker AliveCor, the US International Trade Commission affirmed on Thursday.

The ITC said imports of the infringing watches should be banned, but that it would not enforce a ban until appeals were finished in a separate dispute before the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), where a panel found AliveCor’s patents invalid earlier this month.

The Biden Administration will have a 60-day period to decide whether to veto the import ban based on policy concerns. The commission set a bond of $2 (roughly Rs. 170) for each infringing Apple device imported during the presidential review period, which it also suspended while appeals of the USPTO decision are pending.

Presidents have rarely vetoed import bans in the past. Parties can appeal a ban to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit after the review period ends.
