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.

"The burden of proof was on Apple. They failed to prove that the patent was, in fact, a SEP. Hence, it is not a SEP. "

This is ridiculous.

When defining a standard, is it up to the patent holder to declare his patent belong to the standard, in which case it is added into the standard's patent pool.

The problem is that apparently the patent holder do not have to give the exact list of patents involved, which is absurd I would say.

Anyway, Samsung has sued Apple on 3G patents in many countries and they apparently proposed Apple what they considered as FRAND terms for those patents. Why would they enter into FRAND discussion with Apple for non-SEP?

You are a bling hater. I give up at this point: you don't want to understand the complexity of the situation.
