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.

Of course Samsung gets that. It's called siding with the victim of a broken system.


OK - here are a few very simple question.

Do you think that Samsung copies the designs of other successful companies as an important part of it's core business strategy?

Do you think that Samsung's copying has been highly focussed on Apple in recent years because of the latter's product successes?

If you do think Samsung copies do you then think that degree of copying by Samsung has sometimes gone too far?

Do you think the use of Standard Essential Patents (SEPs ) as a weapon in legal actions is ever justified?
