Samsung Now Wants A US iPhone Ban

Nov 19 2012, 4:00am CST | by

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.

Fun Rant about Those Who Claim Apple is the Copier

Sep 20 2014 6:27pm CDT | Source: The Mac Observer

I got a tip Saturday about a new blog called Tim Cook's Id, with the subheading "what Tim Cook id is really thinking." I'm not sure if that's the case, but the inaugural rant is a beauty about those claiming Apple is the real copier in the mobile world. It's titled, "Anyone saying Apple copied Samsung/Google with a big screen phone is a $%&# idiot," which cuts to the chase. It's also invective-filled ...

Apple’s FaceTime May be in Jeopardy as Patent Infringement Suit Comes to Light

Sep 19 2014 3:21pm CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

Apple gets accused of infringing on technology patents a lot. Mostly, we just hear about Samsung slinging the accusations, but due to the broad nature of tech patents that have been approved in the past, it is very easy for a company to claim that it had the idea first. For example, I could have patented an idea for a device that can be taken out of the home and used for communication with others and then claim that everyone with a cell phone infringed on my patent. OK, so it ...

As of yesterday at 3:00 p.m. PDT, lines outside of Apple retail stores around the world had reached epic proportions. It has been a while since a new iPhone has created such a frenzy. It appears that Apple is back in business as über fans are participating in the line-sitting experience again.
