New twist in Samsung-Apple patent battle

Samsung (SSNLF.PK) has appealed against an ITC ruling in June that prohibited the sale of certain Apple (AAPL) products in the U.S., as the commission found that the latter company only infringed one patent rather than the four that Samsung had claimed.

At the weekend, the government vetoed the banning of the Apple products.

    This blurb is so poorly worded. The initial impression is that Samsung are appealing against a ban of sale of infringing Apple products. The actual appeal is against the ITC finding that three of the patents were not infringed. The wording seems to say that Samsung were somehow defending Apple against a ban, when in fact they are defending their patents. The title is the "twist". It gets the reader looking for something unusual, when there is none.


    As to the government veto, since when has the government ever allowed an outside agency tell it, what would happen on American soil. It always takes rulings under advisement.
