President Obama vetoes Samsung patent ban on iPhone 4 and select iPads
The Obama administration has stepped in today to veto an import ban Samsung won from the International Trade Commission to prevent the iPhone 4 and some iPads from coming into the US. The move marks the first time since 1987 that a President has interfered with an ITC order. Such import bans, which effectively prohibit the sale of certain devices, have come under scrutiny from the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission as more companies are seeking the bans (instead of monetary damages) in an attempt to harm their competitors. Earlier this year President Obama also expressed his intention to combat “patent trolls,” making today’s veto not unexpected.
