According to a report by Reuters, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd infringed a key portion of an Apple Inc patent by including a text-selection feature in its smartphones and tablets, an International Trade Commission judge said in a preliminary decision.


The decision is appealable, but if Samsung is to lose the appeal in front of the full commission as well, Apple is entitled to requesting an US import ban for most smartphones and tablets in the Samsung Galaxy and Samsung Nexus lines.


The final decision is expected to arrive sometime in August and it is not known if Samsung can avoid the potential import ban via a software update that would change the way text selection is made.


We'll keep you posted on any updates.
