Verizon asks Obama to return the iPhone and iPad in the U.S.




Litigation between Apple and Samsung became the reason for the global debate for a long time. The last extreme event, otherwise it is difficult to name, was the prohibition of the Commission on International Trade on the U.S. import of multiple devices from Apple’s claim of Samsung.

This situation can be interpreted in different ways, but the fact remains. It is necessary to keep in mind the seriousness of the ITC, as to reverse the decision of the commission may only Mr. Obama. But will the U.S. President to like, hard to say.

Randal Milch, the lawyer of one of the largest mobile operators in the U.S. – Verizon, decided to appeal to the President of the United States to revoke the decision Trade Commission. Let me remind you that the prohibition also included only those devices that are equipped with a cellular module: iPhone 3G / 3GS / 4 and iPad / iPad 2 c 3G. But even more interesting by the fact that this ban will affect only only devices with installed SIM card AT & T. Their actions Randal Milch explains the case-law of the situation.

The fact is that Apple infringed one of the patents, the industry standard, based on the principles of FRAND. Let me remind you that the standard patents can be used by different parties, but at the lowest possible amounts of licensing. Apple offered Samsung soften the licensing terms for that last refused, setting a 2.4% gain from a patent that Apple is not permissible according to many.

Experts believe that Mr. Obama is not going to appeal the approval of a lawyer Verizon and repeal regulations ITC. Milch believes that the situation with the ban could have a negative impact on the entire U.S. consumer market, which ultimately negatively affect consumers.
