Samsung appeals U.S. ITC ruling on Apple's patent infringement

SEOUL, Aug. 5 (Yonhap) -- In yet another twist in a series of patent wars with Apple Inc., Samsung Electronics Co., the world's largest smartphone maker, has submitted an appeal of a June ruling by a U.S. agency which said the iPhone maker was not infringing upon some of the South Korean company's patents, industry sources said Monday.

Samsung's appeal in the U.S Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit came as U.S. President Barack Obama last week issued a veto on a patent ruling by the International Trade Commission (ITC) that bans the import of some older models of the iPhone and iPad, dealing a blow to Samsung in its ongoing patent dispute with Apple, the world's second-largest smartphone vendor.
