The USITC Ruling

The USITC issued a limited exclusion order in October against Apple, responding to a patent infringement complaint lodged by Masimo. The order demanded that Apple “cease-and-desist” from importing and selling its Apple Watches equipped with pulse oximetry functionality, a move that could have significant consequences for the company’s revenue.
