The U.S. International Trade Commission today ordered an import ban against some Samsung products after finding that the company did infringe on two key Apple patents. The patents include the “Steve Jobs patent” that pertains to touchscreen technology and a patent that detects when a headset is plugged into a device.

Like the import ban that was levied against Apple and later vetoed, Samsung’s import ban will take place after a 60-day Presidential review period. It is unlikely that Samsung will get the same presidential intervention, however, as Samsung’s patent violations do not involve standard-essential patents. According to AllThingsD, Apple praised the court’s decision.

“With today’s decision, the ITC has joined courts around the world in Japan, Korea, Germany, Netherlands and California by standing up for innovation and rejecting Samsung’s blatant copying of Apple’s products,” Apple said. “Protecting real innovation is what the patent system should be about.”

This particular Apple vs. Samsung case began back in mid–2011, after Apple asked the ITC to investigate whether the South Korean company had infringed on a number of different patents. In addition to taking their case to the ITC, Samsung and Apple have fought in numerous courtrooms around the world since their dispute began.

The two have a number of other court battles coming in the months ahead, including an upcoming trial in November that will redetermine a portion of the damages that Samsung must pay Apple.

WIll this also get Vetoed i wonder

No.

Apple doesn’t use the shady tactic of using standard essential patents as a weapon.

There is one and only one guilty party in whole this mess – it’s Apple. They started it and they are winning it.

There, thought I’d fix that to match the article.

If they are winning how come Samsung is now making more profits than Apple? Both companies scored exactly one ITC ban on outdated models. That’s what Samsung wants – so far all these lawsuits did not prevent them from releasing innovative products and making profits in the process. Apple on the other hand… are not doing as well with iPhone market share dropping to 13% (far behind Samsung)

you still drunk with that absurd piece of garbage that people call article? :confused:
pls do a google search my friend…you will find how stupid that article was. im sure plenty of ppl will now post the links…

And by “shady” you mean the fact that Samsung is defending its patents (FRAND or not) which they are entitled to do, right?

Please tell me you’re joking, right?……or trolling, please?…..

(FRAND or not)

Ha ha well there’s kind of a huge difference.

This guy. Samsung’s work from home program must pay out pretty well.

I’d love to “not do well” as well as Apple does…

Clearly. I had to look at his comment twice to believe my eyes.

Well Samsung, when you start making some “real innovation,” then we can talk about Apple’s innovation.

No.

Is this the article — Strategy Analytics: Strategy Analytics: Samsung Becomes World’s Most Profitable Handset Vendor in Q2 2013 (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/strategy-analytics-samsung-becomes-worlds-most-profitable-handset-vendor-in-q2-2013-217059871.html) — the one you’re talking about?

Did you fail to read the Appleinsider article that thoroughly deconstructed that claim (http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/07/27/samsung-has-not-dethroned-apple-in-mobile-profits)? As Dilger notes in that article:

Strategy Analytics’s “division by two” profit “estimates” press release was picked up and uncritically published by a variety of sources, including Juliette Garside of the Guardian UK, David Murphy of PC Mag, Tim Worstall of Forbes, Christopher Harress of London’s International Business Times, Don Reisinger of CNET, Ryan Knutson of the Wall Street Journal, Kevin C. Tofel of Gigaom, Zach Epstein of Boy Genius Report, Matt Clinch of CNBC, and a report by BBC News.

We’ll add you to the list of individuals who were snookered by that fundamentally flawed analysis. :D

Or were you talking about some other claim? References, please.

Harsh words, but speak for yourself.

Will someone please tell me why he/she hasn’t been banned as of yet from MR? Not you, macs4nw, that other person.
