Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

It's not a defense at all. I never once said I agree with the exclusion order - in fact, I think it's ridiculous.

However, and I tried to explain this to you before, if Apple abuses the patent system with crappy software patents as an aggressor, then sure as hell the attacked get to defend themselves.

If I punch you, I sure shouldn't be crying if I get one in return.
