Is iphone 4 really going to be banned in America ? Yes, you heard it right the US international trade commision are going to ban iphone 4 and ipad 2 variants within 60 days. The company said that older models of iphone supresses their current sales.
iphone 4 and ipad 2 is banned in America :
This is all because of the assemble of apple in china and the ban said that it can’t sell it’s phones in US. The itc said that apple doesn’t have a patent which is necessary for 3g services but it is present in their South -Korean rival Samsung .These patents are to get a license under “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory” but Samsung filed a case against apple in that matter under court.
To hear the ruling only 60 days are with President Obama and he already said that ITC should not have such a power that it can have imposed on import bands under these and the phone must not be banned in America. But apple is also not lagging behind so apple also said that it was very much disappointing and it will appeal against that.
Previously also there were much fights against Samsung and Iphone and mostly apple lost it’s US cases. In previous case the jurors awarded 1 billion dollars against the damages and it is also going to be held in this year. Iphone 4 was launched in 2010 and it is still sold by apple and this is going to stop it’s sales this year anyway. ITC said that iphone 4 and ipad 2 ‘s some variants sold by AT&T should not be sold now and is going to be banned in america.
The ITC have some different rules than the courts but President Obama wants that these principles must be same. Apple said that Samsung uses a technique which is denied by courts and people around the world. They said that it is against the minds of consumers in countries like Europe and then also samsung wants to block the sales of apple products in America by using these patents to have a license for anyone charging a reasonable fee.
