Apple Requests ITC to Halt August Import Ban on iPhone and iPad

The request made by Apple has solid sense behind it. It stands to lose a lot if its iPhones and iPads are banned from being imported. Besides, Apple’s products are limited in number. The irreversible damage that will be inflicted on Apple’s revenues if such a restriction order goes into effect are too colossal to contemplate. According to Gigaom, apart from Apple, its carrier colleagues will be facing huge losses too. Thus it is not very feasible. The products are the “in” thing among users and it would be quite a setback to the consumer base. Actually, the whole thing got off the ground due to patent hassles between Apple and Samsung. Some of Apple’s products which were banned from being imported include the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2G.

Apple’s main argument is that the ban must be overturned. Its petition stands to reason since Apple’s products carry GSM service. The fact that Samsung won the court ruling has been a rude awakening for Apple. Now, Apple is seeking delaying tactics to bolster its business back to its original level. Meanwhile, the only human entity that is capable of reversing the ban will probably not act in such a manner. President Obama is least likely to veto the ban and so Apple will unfortunately be left high and dry.
