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.

"Apple is the aggressor. Samsung the victim."

You are obviously assuming here that Apple claims are all baseless, otherwise Apple would be the victim and Samsung the aggressor fighting back at the victim.

But in this case, you are encouraging using a gun (SEP patent which is unavoidable) to fight back an aggressor which attack you with a stick (Apple's patent have simple workaround). Too bad you are not an US citizen: you would have done a nice republican from Texas).
