President Barack Obama has announced that every time Samsung wins a lawsuit against Apple he will veto the decision. However, it is unclear what will happen when Apple beats Samsung.
Victory by Samsung would have protected it from the iPhone 4 and some iPads entering the United States from China if they used technology which stole Samsung’s ideas. Local media revealed that it’s the first time since 1987 that a US President has interfered with an ITC order. In response, the White House claimed that it was an important element of the Administration’s policy of promoting innovation and economic progress.
The veto means that Apple will be allowed to keep importing and selling the above mentioned gadgets in the United States, but the White House pointed out that the veto will in no way address the legal merit of Samsung’s claims. Obama’s decision to disapprove that determination won’t mean that the patent owner in this case isn’t entitled to a remedy. On the contrary, the South Korean giant may continue to pursue its rights through the courts. The President administration is eager to see itself as trying to shut down the use of import bans as a weapon for patent trolls. Obama has indicated that the White House will prevent the ITC from awarding product bans in the future in lawsuits involving essential patents. However, it is unclear whether this will apply to non-US companies.
Of course, the South Korea is furious with the news, because the White House has just taken away its bargaining chip to stop Apple doing the same trick to it. Samsung’s spokesperson admitted that the ITC’s decision recognized that the company has been negotiating in good faith and that Apple remains unwilling to take a license.
In response, Apple really rubbed it in, claiming that it invented everything and all competitors should be exterminated. In the worst case of hypocrisy that the industry has ever seen from Apple, its spokesperson claimed that thanks to the Obama administration standing up for innovation in this landmark case, Samsung was efficiently ruled wrong to abuse the patent system in that way.
In the meantime, Apple recognizes itself as a company which has never abused the patent system by trolling its rivals off the shelf… Bla-bla-bla.

|Before ANYONE starts 'Apple Bashing', you must first understand, that in computing terms - the two Steve's were in fact the first technology 'pirates' that affected computing - (Xerox PARC), VERY quickly followed by Meester Gates - (Apple) and swiftly followed by Linus Torvaald, - (everything possible but giving it away for nothing claiming there were no development costs, whatsoever - never made a penny out of it...) - Samsung on the other hand, was a technology supplier, engaged by 'a' company - (we have rules here too - and will sue the arse of anyone that breaks them), as I'm sure Apple and Samsung do too - regarding the things that you are 'priveledged to see'. The lesson here for everyone is - "Feck the patents", get it in writing and signed by their grandchildren... (I was going to go on with an 'only in america', rant - and I 'can't believe you're still bombing muslims' rant when you have one as a president of the 'good ol us of a', (purposefully in small caps).|
|Obama everyone knows he speaks with forked tounge hypocrit and a liar ask braddley manning or edward snowdon no wonder people around the world hate america.|

|No-one needs to crApple bash, Osama Bin Obama will quote English Kenyan oppression while continuing Guantanamo Bay in all its glory? Not one company can claim industrial innocent Apple least of all. The desperate claims of a company in dire straits will sound s desperate as a Nazi claiming "I was only following orders"|

|make your own rules to suit you.... I would if I could so do you blame him. if you have the power abuse it|
|This is the first time I've been actually disappointed with Obama. I hope he enforces the rule to Apple too. And forces a very much needed overhaul in the US patents system. At the end of the day Apple are the biggest patent trolls around. They haven't innovated since the first iPhone and even that was only a slight innovation|

|LMBO at this "since the first iPhone and even that was only a slight innovation", what was slight about it ? Real battery life, and a touch screen interface for the MASSES - (Sorry to slag you off, I was there with the first one, (an iPod that could text)), there was NOTHING like it on the scene, and we're going to have to wait a couple of months for the next one...|

|SAM comments like "claiming that it invented everything and all competitors should be exterminated" could be viewed as libel. Half this article is BS, again! How come you don't write an article about Samsung or MS being sued by there own customers unless you own an xbox then you lose that right?|
|I wonder, if the situation had been the other way around as in Samsung instead of Apple would Obama have intervened?|

|I dont understand why Extratorrent allows this big article lie on their website|
the american president he dint allow american products to be banned from america for logical reasons i dont see how this concernes the rest of the world
specially when obama is pretty clear that favours more samsung over apple why else they were about inclunding are countries to make us start a war with north korea just save their precious south korea who gives them lots and lots of money
As non Apple user im really getting to hear those samsung die hard fans whinning about apple well atleast apple created stuff unlike samsung. the only reason why samsung become popular in the first place is that the galaxy was easy to pronouce in the rest of the world and because they knew apple was using their processor in the iphone
wich how dont know how smart Steve Jobs was but samsung processor over intel that pretty dumb decision
and yes i hate samsung way before apple users did i got no problems with windows, apple and others. just samsung mostly for puting their trash everywere inclunding HDDs and the name of their company is terible even uglier than fujitsu and toshiba
when you buy a tv usually you pay more for a firm tv for two reasons quality and name samsung only offers one or none
dont you dare to write a negative comment below me
|That's sums it up.Let's nuke 'm.|
He should finally decide which is the real coca cola,pepsi or afri.,alltough one might suspect,that he will actually go for the blow..
Let to war/raid on drugs/money continue..it's just too big a party..

|1st OBAMA is one big-ass joke and he can't veto crap from a court ruling even if King pinhead thinks he can. OBAMA is clueless when it comes to real technology past pushing the correct button so I laugh at his dumb-ass daily. Was a LOSER!!|

|Man3000, all of SaM's article's on ET are terrible, misleading and inaccurate. He needs to use some f'n quotes instead of paraphrasing and twisting things.|

|@ Middle Finger - the patent thing is two way - Samsung is countering and sending in it's own team, (saying, "despite what the client wanted and asked for, AND PAID FOR - they have the right to all of the intellectual property ?????" - That's a lot like going to the dentist and having your teeth veneered, and him saying you owe him 100K because he's a teeth specialist - hey - wait a minute.....)|
|i guess obama didn't read the article when steve jobs said he would never bring any manufacturing back to america and didn't want american workers because he can't wake up a dormitory full of workers at midnite and just give them tea and a biscuit and have them pull a 24 hour shift...|
...because he could make 100 bucks more per unit if they made them in china than in america.
and he said a bunch of other anti american garbage too...
|apple already lost in australia and europe..., so america is their only hope to monopolize a market.|

|Timbo, i agree|
i can post the web links but you can google it
People of Japan, Europe, Australia and USA you really need wake up and stop buying Samsung products!
People of East Europe works for a Germany company: that does make sense
People of East Europe works for a Korean company: that doesnt make fuc...ing sense i knew that the economy of east europe was doing bad but come on to work for koreans i never thought that bad also Germany, France, Spain inclunding US your next
You have so many choices as an Android user istead buying Samsung: HTC One, Sony XPeria Z, Moto X, LG G2, all of this phones are actual better than S4 and S3 also including iPhone 5 (besides jailbreaing its actually a good phone and not because its called the iPhone)
Samsung S4 has many apps that doesnt work and both S4 and S3 the batery perfomance is terrible

|@ fusseltier you are full of BS AGAIN, Jobs never said any of that and a quick search reveals that apple has brought manufacturing back to the US.|
|Obama cannot veto a legal decision. It's called the separation of powers.||
