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.

So why did Samsung choose to apply a special licensing agreement for Apple for older 3G chips? Why didn't they do the same for newer Qualcomm chips?


It is simple, Qualcomm is the one licensing the technology from Samsung for all its clients.
The chip maker for iPhone 4 had not done this, and also apple refused to license it.
