HTC Shares Fall in Taipei After ITC Ruling on Apple Patents

Apple’s hard earned supremacy in Tech market is probably an aftermath of rigorous R&D. However, the counterfeit product makers such as HTC have blindly copied the patented technology while carving out their products. ITC has passed the ruling against HTC for stealing Apple’s proprietary patents without paying for the patented technology.  This came in at a point in time when HTC was expecting good sales numbers from its flagship HTC Flyer tablets. However, the patent backlash from Apple has led to weaker sentiment in the local stock market too. HTC’s shares plunged down as the news came in and the upcoming weeks’ outlook seems to offer no respite for the Taiwanese gadget maker.

The gadget maker, HTC, might well need to pay up royalty to Apple for settling the issue or be required to innovate on its own. However, given that at the back drop millions of users are already HTC’s gadgets it would be tough to pull out the cutting edge solution from scratch on the move. Therefore, the only option for HTC at the moment is to pay up a lump sum amount to Apple for continuing using it or totally stop the manufacturing of such units.

Therefore, if you were planning to get your hands on to HTC devices then stay put for some time. Probably the better option would be to invest in Apple’s products as it will come with a quality of conformance benefits without any constraints.
