Samsung wins Apple in latest court battle US to ban some older Apple iPhones, iPads
The Apple vs Samsung never-ending era of court battles took a new twist yesterday as The U.S. International Trade Commission handed a ban on the importation of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3 and iPad 3G and iPad 2 3G into the USA. There will be a 60-day grace period after which the commission will sit with president Barack Obama for upholding or cancelling the verdict. Meanwhile Apple can still appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals if the verdict is upheld.
Speaking to AllThingsD, Kristin Huguet, a spokeswoman for Apple replied that, “Samsung is using a strategy which has been rejected by the courts and regulators around the world,” Huguet said. “They’ve admitted that it’s against the interests of consumers in Europe and elsewhere, yet here in the United States Samsung continues to try to block the sale of Apple products by using patents they agreed to license to anyone for a reasonable fee.”
Samsung haven’t said anything on the verdict yet but we expect to hear from them in the next 24 hours.
