Santa Barbara, California, wireless audio company Sonos Inc. made a big splash in tech circles a couple of years back by suing Google both in the Central District of California and the U.S. International Trade Commission claiming the company infringed its patent technology.

The ITC ruling last week follows a decision from an administrative law judge at the agency who last year found Google infringed all five patents asserted by Sonos after a five-day remote trial.
