Samsung Appeals to Obama for Import Ban Veto

Oct 11 2013, 12:21am CDT | by

Samsung, the South Korean-based smartphone manufacturer is making an appeal to President Obama. They are requesting that a ban on the importation of particular older smartphone models be vetoed.

As reported by HNGN, Samsung wants President Obama to veto a ban which prohibits certain older smartphones from being imported and sold on U.S. markets. The ban was set to initiate on October 8, but Samsung is stepping in to defend Apple and it is not the first time.

These two companies are the biggest brands in the current global smartphone marketplace. Any changes in policies would have an impact on their competitiveness. Samsung does not want these import bans, stating that such bans should not be established for these highly advanced products just because of a few features. Company representatives argue that it has been agreed upon by scholars, courts, and other industry participants that such as ban awards the patentee disproportionality and it is the U.S customers that would suffer for it.

In the second quarter, Samsung held 32 percent of worldwide smartphone sales, while Apple’s share was only 13. It is Samsung’s theory that the ban could serve the cause of protecting and advancing Apple.

Now many eyes are watching how the U.S responds to Samsung, as Michael Froman, a U.S trade representative, made it clear that playing favorites is not the motive of the U.S government in this matter.  Apple happens to be in favor of the ban, because it would help to protect the company’s patents, as well as the distinctiveness of its products.
