Verizon to President Obama: Can You Hear Me Now?
Wasting very little time connecting with the power players in Washington, one of Verizon's lead attorneys is reaching out to the White House for help in preventing a possible iPhone ban stemming from Apple's ongoing legal battle with Samsung.
In a detailed editorial published in the Wall Street Journal, Randal S. Milch - executive vice president of public policy and general counsel of Verizon Communications - articulated why President Obama should intervene and soon.
By early August, the Obama administration must decide whether to veto the ITC's decision to bar the devices alleged to have infringed on a Samsung patent. Should it?
Verizon would like to see the Obama administration veto the ITC's controversial decision, even though a sitting president hasn't made such a move since 1987.
"Patent litigation at the ITC — where the only remedy is to keep products from the American public — is too high-stakes a game for patent disputes," Milch explained. "The fact that the ITC's intellectual-property dispute docket has nearly quadrupled over 15 years only raises the stakes further. Smartphone patent litigation accounts for a substantial share of that increase."

The ITC didn't determine that Apple "supposedly" infringed; it determined they infringed. Period.

The 4 is all they still sell anyways. Pretty soon they'll offer the 4s 5s and plastic 5. Lol, they should call it the 5p.
My point is, it doesn't really matter. If the 4 gets banned stateside then they'll have more inventory to focus on low cost markets elsewhere in the world.

Any takers want to bet that August 2nd (possibly slightly sooner) will see an announcement from Apple introducing the lower cost iPhone 5-whatever it's called? This would make the ban utterly useless, as rumors have it that Apple is planning on discontinuing the sale of the iPhone 4S and lower.

what is cooking here ... is Apple an essential ingredient..

This is the easiest way out. Apple is found guilty, so they will have to pay for all the sold iPhones that infringe on the technology might as well get it over with.
Or Apple release the new cheap iPhones early to take over the cheap phone category, then drag this case further and most likely have to pay anyways.
