Too late, but it sends a message out that Samsung shamelessly copied Apple.
They've since come out of that China mentality and make some good phones, but they need punishing for using other ideas to gain dominance in the market.
President Obama dont have any more complicated problems ?
Last time he make veto for court decision about selling ban Apple products in USA, motivation it is american vendor and we need him.
It's obviously WTO rules violation. South Korea just should complain to WTO now.
somewhere tim cook is saying yes ban those S2 (smiling ) , o wait sh** not the S2 , tell obama i lie it's the S4 , it's the S4
JaM1977, 08 Oct 2013quite bad decision... just making this a political matter.. South Korea will have to respond o... moreObama is an idiot front man for the corporations, he has no power of his own. His orders come from wallstreet crones. Same was the case with Bush Snr, Bush Jnr and Clinton. POTUS is just a name sake now.
obama turn the other cheek on Apple infringing , said he does not want to hurt his economy , but 1 month later the government shuts down over health care , i guess the iphone 5s and iphone 5 c can do CPR and cure hiv
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2013thats why apple is dumb. wasting all that money to bad OLD devices.. I don't think that Apple paid money for this.
What to ban? Those phones are not in production anymore. Who would want to import a discontinued phone? Or buy one? Hahaha Funny!
Kreaninw D Unlimited, 08 Oct 2013Ban the S2 now? For what???thats why apple is dumb. wasting all that money to bad OLD devices..
After vetoing samsung's court victory over apple in court. So much fair justice, stupid partial government.
Samsung will pay them back one day
