Major smartphone maker HTC said that there are no fundamental problems with the legal battle against Apple and reassured that the management will not put the firm into a dangerous situation.

“Many lawsuits nowadays are results of being successful, it is part of the business. We will not bring the company to a dangerous position,” said Peter Chou, chief executive officer of HTC, in a conference call with financial analysts, reports International Business Times web-site.

The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled in a preliminary decision that HTC infringed two of Apple’s patents related to a “system and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data” and a “real-time signal processing system for serially transmitted data”. Some say that other suppliers of smartphones based on Google Android operating system also infringe these patents.

Although the ITC also found in a preliminary decision that Apple Mac OS X infringed two of S3 Graphics patents related to texture compression technology (which could affect sales of Macs and therefore ease negotiations between Apple and HTC), the USPTO (U.S. patent & trademark office) said that the technologies were not patentable.

Earlier this week HTC said that it was willing to negotiate with Apple regarding the patents. Google said it would help its Android partners to fight those, who accuse them of patents infringements.
