ITC ruling in Analog Devices/Knowles dispute over MEMS technology

A Bloomberg/BusinessWeek post begins:

Analog Devices Inc. said Wednesday that the U.S. International Trade Commission has ruled in its favor in a patent case. But its opponent, Knowles Electronics LLC, sought to tamp down the significance of the ruling saying that the manufacturing process that it currently uses is not affected.

Later, the post states:

Still, Analog Devices said it is seeking damages for past sales of the microphones.

but neglects to mention that the ITC does not award damages.

The technology at issue is micro-electromechanical systems [MEMS].

There is a co-pending Federal District Court Case in Delaware in which Analog Devices can (and is) seeking damages.
