The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that iPhone 4, iphone 3GS, iPhone 3, iPad 3 g and iPad 2 3G distributed in the U.S. by AT&T should be banned from the U.S. market. The complaint made by Samsung seems to be able to nip in the market for Apple devices in the U.S..
iPhone 4, iphone 3GS, iPhone 3, iPad 3 g and iPad 2 3G distributed in the U.S. by AT&T in danger of not being able to be traded in the U.S. market because the U.S.. International Trade Commission has determined that these models (older, but still on the market in USA) violate a patent registered by Samsung relating to “apparatus and methods for encoding and decoding related to CDMA networks” ( patent 7,706,348)
The complaint made by Samsung ha portato l’agenzia statunitense per la concorrenza ad emettere un blocco delle importazioni negli Stati Uniti che sarà esecutivo fra 60 days.
I principali fornitori fuori USA sono Cina e Taiwan. The only chance that Apple scamparla this time is to rely on Barack Obama: from what has been learned in fact only a presidential veto could stop the stop sales.
It seems to be really a blow to Apple, which ultimately was refreshed after the victory against Samsung in court last summer.
The judgment of these days could be a blow to Apple, that in addition to a fine and a ban on sales of older products, involves a blow to the image of Apple shortly after the news of the sentence has lost the 1, 2% on its own shares.
Apple has issued an official statement on the subject accusing Samsung to play the game of competition in a dirty way, trying to use legal loopholes to hamper the activities of Apple on the market.
