    Samsung will paint this as blatant nationalistic discrimination to distract from the egregious reality of their documented abuses.

    Doesn't matter. What Apple really gains from this is that Samsung has had to (yet again) modify its devices to avoid infringement. Even if no devices actually get banned Apple still wins as Samsung had to make changes.

    Actually, even that doesn't help much. Samsung's blatant theft of Apple technology probably cost Apple a lot more than the $1 B that Apple might collect some day.

    The problem is that the system moves too slowly. By the time the appeals are exhausted and Apple gets a Samsung device banned, it's already obsolete. Samsung can continue to infringe with impunity - by the time they get caught and fined, they've already earned far more money than they have to pay in fines. And banning a 3 year old product isn't worth much.

    Apple would win if one of three things would happen:

    1. Samsung is punished heavily enough that the infringement no longer makes them more money than they pay out.
    2. Consumers see Samsung constantly getting slapped down by the courts and stop buying Samsung copycat products.
    3. After Samsung gets slapped down by a court often enough to irritate a judge, the court creates some mechanism whereby patent claims against Samsung's products get expedited review.

    Frankly, I don't see any of those things happening. Samsung has a great scam - steal technology, make billions from it, and then pay a modest fine out of pocket change.

    Which is better than the 63% (and counting) that dislike the GOP and their teenage sidekick, the Tealiban Party.

    Obama is a great president. He should look at more products from non US firms to ban. If I had it my way only Apple iPhones should be allowed to be sold in the USA. Even though not overturning this ban is politically motivated, the US government must continue to stop Samsung and other manufacturers from selling devices in the USA.

    This is NOT going over too well with the Samdroids on C|net. No, not at all. Combine politics with hatred and ho-boy, what a volatile mix.

    The mainstream media keep on ignoring Samsung shenanigans.

    The BBC, The Guardian, the worst of them all - The HuffingtonPost ...

    Samsung knows this, so it will not change.

    Because it's really not all that important.

    Even a small sep in justice lifts the weary fighter's heart. A club, shackles - nay, public spanks, not too much to ask. But as we delight in the wee treats one dreams of stocks or the pillory for the shameful one. Pillory's my preference, but whose to quibble with the delights of either.

    Oh let's all go over there and stir the proverbial! :)

    Remember, always start off stating you own several Androids and PCs and love all things Google. Microsoft and Samsung (careful with that spelling ... ) but ... then slam everything about them. Oh and make up really cool troll names. :D

    The U.S. doesn't negotiate with terrorists.

     

    As far as compromising, the Senate budget bill hits the EXACT numbers the Republicans want - they already compromised, all the way to meet the Republicans' demands. They even put the sequester cuts into it, making them permanent. That's not good enough for the crazies, though - they couldn't stop health care by actually voting down the original law, so they try to hold the country hostage over it. It won't work.

    if that's all apple got then its a hollow victory. 

    No not really because now they make samsung modify there devices.  That modification includes newer devices too because if they dont they will find themselves right back in court for the newer devices.  Which Apple is already doing.  Apple has made no bones about it.  

    Tim Cook put it this way:

    Quote:

     “From our point of view, it’s important that Apple not be the developer for the world. We cannot take all of our energy and all of our care, and finish the painting, and have someone else put their [sic] name on it. We cannot have that. The worse thing in the world that can happen to you if you’re an engineer and you’ve given your life to something is to have someone to rip it off and put their [sic] name on it. What we want to accomplish is, we just want people to invent their own stuff” (Tim Cook interview with All Things Digital)


    This is why they go to court.  There not interested in licensing there ideas and ip.  They just want people to quit using there ideas and stealing there ip. Period.
