Apple Says It’s Pleased With Patent Decision Against Qualcomm

(Bloomberg) -- Here is Apple Inc.’s statement on Tuesday’s ruling from the U.S. International Trade Commission, which invalidated one Qualcomm Inc. patent after a judge in a separate case at the agency said Apple infringed on another:

We’re pleased the ITC has found Qualcomm’s latest patent claims invalid. It’s another important step to making sure American companies are able to compete fairly in the marketplace. Qualcomm is using these cases to distract from having to answer for the real issues, their monopolistic business practices. They are being investigated by governments around the world for their behavior, and we look forward to detailing the many ways they’re harming consumers and stifling innovation when we present our case in San Diego next month.
