Apple Vs. Samsung Patent Battle

October 8, 2013 by  

Apple Vs. Samsung Patent Battle, U.S. ban on products made by Samsung Electronics Co. that infringe on Apple patents is set to take effect.

The decision is the latest step in a patent battle between the two companies that has spread across several countries as Apple and Samsung vie for market share in the lucrative mobile industry. Samsung and Apple are the No. 1 and No. 2 smartphone makers globally, respectively.

The U.S. International Trade Commission said Aug. 9 that some older smartphones and tablets made by South Korea’s Samsung infringed on Apple patents. It banned the importation or sale of the devices.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman could have overturned the ban — as he did Aug. 3 in a case where Apple was found to have infringed on a Samsung patent — but did not.

“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 commission’s determination,” Froman said in a statement.
