    What about all of the other oems that produce LTE capable phones? I guess Samsung won't sue them because they aren't already in a litigation war with them. But suppose Samsung does sue Apple and wins. Would they use that precedent against Moto, HTC, LG, etc. at some point?

    This web is getting much more tangled in a hurry. Time for all of these corporate behemoths to call a truce. Ain't gonna happen though.

    Valid point.

    I dont think they will. Moto, HTC, LG..etc arent being little babies about everything. If Samsung does some how manage to take down the iPhone it will be unreal. I would wager that if Sammy files suit and wins they will use it as a bartering chip with Apple to get them to drop their suit and give them back there 30 billion nickels (that was hilarious)

    Thas the trade dress design which is currently being disputed. LTE is something different. IDC that Samsung is going for Apple on this LTE and 10% of the market is an exceptional margin. My curiosity is can Sammy win this battle?

    Even if an injuction were granted, can't it be overturned because it would be too detrimental for a popular product to be banned since our economy needs the exchange of money now more than ever? I thought I heard that somewhere

    I doubt they would. I think it is entirely retaliation, not trolling. Don't forget, Moto has old patents that are so vague they only say radio in them; not a good idea to go after them.

    Your right.
    It can be overturned provided it would be a positive impact vs a negative one.
    How would it affect USA if the Iphone was banned?
    If it wasnt?
    Would our economy go into shambles more then it already is?
    Apple is the number one company in the US if not the world in terms of assets and their pockets.

    Capitalism at its finest no matter how unhealthy our vision of the idea currently is.

    my hope is that Sammy gets Apple to back the **** off and progress will keep moving forward.

    Apple makes good stuff there is no denying that but so does Sammy. Let the dust settle and then continue with pumping out incredible products.

    on a funnier note. I think they should Hunger Games this debate. Pick 12 people from each company, from different departments (CEO's included) and let them fight to the death. Whoever wins gets to make the decision

    This would probably cause more damage to Apple then what Apple did to Samsung. Since Samsung would be going after the brand new iPhone 5, instead of what Apple did and targeted older phones. Like the GS, GSII, etc.
