Apple to Appeal against ITC Ban on iPhone Imports

Apple to Appeal against ITC Ban on iPhone Imports

The ITC ruled in favor of Samsung by putting a ban on import of AT&T based Apple iPhones and iPads comes before iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. As this decision came, Apple has decided to contest it in higher courts. According to Bloomberg, after the ITC’s ruling the only powers that can reverse the ban are either the White House or Federal Courts. President Barack Obama will get a two month period to review the whole issue and either veto it or leave it as it is. Apple is going to use all the weapons at its disposal according to AllThingsD and so it will also go to the Federal Courts. The ITC is responsible for all products that get traded between nations. After weighing all the facts, the ITC refused to allow Apple products (most of which are made abroad) from being imported into the US. However, the ban is selective and will not necessarily hurt Apple so badly. Only three iPhone models and two iPad editions will be removed from the imported items. The latest Apple products have escaped this clause though.

Samsung meanwhile is glad the ruling was in its favor. It was sick and tired of Apple’s dictatorial behavior. Often being called a carbon-copier, Samsung’s image will get a boost from this landmark decision. There were several loopholes in Apple’s business ethics and they certainly did land it in trouble with the law. The fact that it had infringed upon a Samsung patent led to complications in the relations between the two giant firms. While Apple failed to prove its innocence in these matters, a spokesperson has said that they are disappointed with the decision. In fact, the representative spoke of how it is Samsung which is the guilty party. For now at least Samsung has won the case.

Actually the whole litigation has economic reasons behind it. The smart phone market spans the whole globe and is a very profitable business. All the players want their rightful slice of the pie. But that is precisely the problem since not everyone can have an equal amount or even the amount it wants in the first place. This leads to trials being fought and bad feelings on both ends. Of course, in the end the winner takes it all while the loser has a fall. Apple and Samsung have locked horns previously and the former has won against the latter. But this time around Samsung has turned the tables and snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
