How are you going to implement this Ban on places like Ebay,Amazon and many of the Smaller Online Retailers???

@tech4people, I am not sure if its a good idea to buy goods from other countries. For example in India if you order products from US, the products are taxed so heavily  that the cost of the product jumps by nearly 30-70%.

These guys both just know how to keep their Lawyers Busy!!!!

@tech4people, well said :). I am sure Apple is feeling threatened now because Samsung is giving tough competition to Apple in smartphone segment.

Rich, Don't knock lawyers. You may in future need one of them to get you out of a problem you didn't know could possibly happen.

They created patent laws through their lawyer buddies in Congress, then they sniff out violators, through their buddies working as inhouse counsels, then they file briefs directly and get another lawyer in some robe to decide winners and losers. Then they file appeals . . .

By the time all these disputes land in front of the master lawyers -- those ones in even funnier robes at the Supreme Court who we cannot sack and whose verdicts are infallible and who may fall asleep during hearings because they are octogenarians -- the patents are no longer relevant or it's been made redundant by some new discoveries. The Supremes themselves may not decide the matter, though. They may just send it back to a lower court to rule on some funny part of the law. The cycle continues . . .

Yes, lawyers and doctors are scholars who happen to like nice cars--but I wouldn't hold that against the entire profession!

Diversity and free enterprise seem to be our best bet here.  When the competition is as fierce as it is now in this market, people are sure to push the envelope ethically and legally.  Sometimes you have to call in the lawyers to at least try to keep everybody honest.

@Rich,

"Remember, join Nokia, and live in peace."

Wow!, That is quite a strong stand. Are you really sure "Nokia will have absolute power over other smartphone companies"?

@tech4people

"Kind of a High Prize to pay for a Largely Symbolic Victory.Ain't it?"

We can say that, but it is a  victory nevertheless, given that Apple lawsuits in other countries haven't had that positive outcome. At least the company is "well treated" at home. :)

@Rich,

Whether Apple will pay that money or not, it has won a battle against Samsung in the US, hasn't it? But my question is why only the US and not in other countries?

@rich, if i understood your sarcasm correctly then i agree that 2.6 million USD is nothing for Apple but in relative terms the bond sum is a big amount.
