Samsung Now Wants A US iPhone Ban

It never ends...

Samsung and Apple seriously are not going to make up any time soon. In the wake of even more huge developments in the ongoing legal saga between the two companies, Samsung is now asking a regulatory body to consider a ban on iPhone and iPad imports into the country.

Samsung claims that Apple's products use technology that is restricted from use by patents that Samsung owns. As a result, it wants the International Trade Commission the impost a sales ban.

Of course, this is just the latest in the back-and-forth that first really erupted when Apple started suing Samsung. In what have been textbook-worthy history-making lawsuits, Apple has managed to win in some jurisdictions (most notably the US), but lose in others.

In other words, there is nothing anywhere close to a clear-cut answer in this situation. Both companies have hard heads, and both have legal precedent on their side -- it's just different based on which country you're in. Because of all this confusion, Samsung wants the guilty verdict it suffered in the US case to be thrown out.

The ITC will be looking at that case, and of course the entire breadth of the Samsung and Apple legal issues, and will make a decision on what sorts of sanctions, if any, should be levied to the applicable countries.

An adverse decision from the ITC from either company could have incredible implications not only for Samsung and Apple, but really for the entire technology industry. The ripple effect occurs because of the impacts that such a move would have on suppliers and manufacturers, which deal with many other consumer electronics firms.
