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.

Company A has used an international organization to ban the devices of Company B from sale in the United States using, arguably, a standards essential patent.

ITC isn’t international, its a US organisation. This is also not a standards essential patent. Maybe this is why you struggle.

If you fear international/global trade bans, you should be campaigning to prevent ACTA/related agreements.
