US bans older Samsung imports Featured

By

Samsung has suffered a big blow in the US over the weekend with a court issuing an import ban on some Samsung devices on grounds they violate two of Apple's patents.

The US International Trade Commission issued its ruling late on Friday in the US, just days after President Obama overturned a similar ban of the import of older Apple devices.

The Obama administration now has 60 days to decide whether to let the Samsung ban take effect, and may stoke accusations of favouritism if it decides to back the American Apple over South Korea's Samsung.

The ruling didn't specify which devices are affected, but earlier news reports suggested it was Samsung's Galaxy SII and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, while the ITC cleared Samsung on four other patents in dispute.

Samsung said following the decision that availability of its products wouldn't be affected, as it's believed Samsung has already removed infringing features from its later smartphones and tablets.

"We have already taken measures to ensure that all of our products will continue to be available in the United States," a Samsung spokesman told the Wall Street Journal.

The news is the latest in a long list of legal stoushes between the companies worldwide, with Apple winning a US$1 billion patent ruling in 2012 when the ITC then ruled that Samsung had infringed on its patents. The matter is still in the appeals process.

Apple is also currently going after Google's Motorola Mobility division over similar patents.
