Samsung loses bid to veto import ban won by Apple

It's probably an old story, but Samsung's been crying fowl over its previous loss from Apple, a damage that led to the import ban of select Samsung phones in the U.S. Samsung has requested a veto of the previous ruling, but attempts seem to be futile as President Obama has finally decided not to veto the import ban.

In a statement released earlier today, President Obama, through the U.S. Trade Representative, Michael Froman, said, "After carefully weighing policy considerations, including the impact on consumers and competition, advice from agencies, and information from interested parties, I have decided to allow the import ban."

However, it's worth noting that the ruling only applies to phones deemed to be infringing Apple's patents, which happen to be old Samsung phones that aren't even widely available in the U.S.

Samsung's got a slew of new phones this year, so we doubt the decision will even affect Samsung's continuous hurling of products.
