U.S. Department of Justice investigating Samsung’s use of standard-essential patents against Apple

FOSS Patents:

An Apple filing with the International Trade Commission, a U.S. government agency with quasi-judicial authority that can impose import bans on patent-infringing products, reveals another ongoing antitrust investigation concerning suspected abuse of FRAND-pledged standard-essential patents. Apple said this much in its statement on public interest considerations relevant to the investigation of Samsung’s complaint. In that statement, which was filed with the ITC on Monday and entered the public record today, Apple avers that “the [United States] Department of Justice has opened an investigation into the manner in which Samsung has used—or misused—its declared-essential patents”.
