US trade commission launches probe into Apple over alleged patent infringement

The United States International Trade Commission has voted to open an investigation into Apple over alleged patent infringement.

The investigation is based on a complaint filed by Aqua Connect, Inc., and Strategic Technology Partners, LLC, of Orange, CA, on October 10, 2017. Products at issue in the investigation are certain Apple Mac computers, iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Apple TVs. Apple stock was down a fraction in late trading to $171.11.

According to Mashable.com, the complaint hinges on Apple's AirPlay, technology that enables audio and video to be streamed wirelessly across different Apple devices. Aqua Connect believes that tool is based on its intellectual property.

Aqua Connect and Strategic Technology Partners have asked the USITC to issue a limited exclusion and cease and desist order against the infringed products, according to the statement from the federal agency.

The USITC's Chief Administrative Law Judge will assign the case to one of the USITC's administrative law judges (ALJ), who will schedule and hold an evidentiary hearing.

The USITC said it would set a target date for completion of the investigation within 45 days.
