The International Trade Commission on Monday began prehearing of Apple's complaints about infringement of its patents by Nokia. According to very preliminary judgments by the ITC staff, Nokia should not be found guilty in the case.

Apple is demanding the ITC to stop imports of Nokia phones into the U.S., asserting they are infringing four patents of the Cupertino, California-based company. The Nokia phones at issue include ones that run on its Symbian operating system. Nokia is challenging both infringement and validity of the Apple patents, which include one for a way the device boots up and another related to power management, according to Bloomberg news-agency.

"The evidence will not establish a violation” of Apple patent rights, the ITC staff said in a pre-hearing memo.

The ITC should find whether or not Nokia infringed Apple's patents by the 24th of January, 2011. The investigation should be completed by June '11.
