Once Apple praised the US president Barack Obama’s dedication to stamping out such patent trolls as Samsung, the latter faced a ban on its products in the United States. The matter is that the country’s International Trade Commission has decided that Samsung infringed on a couple of patents owned by Apple.
According to media reports, the patents in dispute are US Patent No. 7,479,949, dealing with a touch screen and user interface, and US Patent No. 7,912,501, relating to detecting when a headset is connected. The US International Trade Commission claimed that while the Korean giant didn’t infringe on the other two patents, until the President Obama steps in and blocks the ban, a range of Samsung products will be refused an import license.
The recent ruling in favor of Apple was the only one issued by the US President within the last 25 years. As you can see, it is unlikely to happen, but Barack Obama is understood to be angry about the ITC being used by patent trolls. Industry observers consider this move as US protectionism.
At the time, an Apple spokesperson claimed the company applauds the President Administration for standing up for innovation in this “landmark case”, saying that the Korean giant was wrong to abuse the patent system like that. So, if the President doesn’t block this ban he runs the risk of only allowing US patent trolls like Apple to exist, while angering South Korea and spurring talk of unfair trade bans.

|Why the hell would us Europeans be interested in banning Samsung selling there products? We get ripped off by every companies product we import. Apples products are no different, look at the IPADS. The cost differences to buying here and the US isn't pennies or cents.. Much more! Same with the new iphones.. If it wasn't for companies, like Samsung.. Then there wouldn't be a market place and you would be spoon fed products! All Apple is worried about, is that Samsung might make a product just as good and sell it cheaper..|
