|Obama Overturns Apple iPhone and iPad Patent Ban In U.S.|
| 3:33 pm on Aug 5, 2013 (gmt 0)|
|A ban on sales of older models of Apple's iPad and iPhone in the US has been overturned by the Obama administration. |
In June, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) ruled that Apple infringed a patent of rival Samsung.
President Barack Obama's trade representative has now vetoed that decision because of its "effect on competitive conditions in the US economy".
Such a veto is a relatively rare event.Obama Overturns Apple iPhone and iPad Patent Ban In U.S. [bbc.co.uk]
|Apple welcomed the news and applauded Mr Obama "for standing up for innovation". It added: "Samsung was wrong to abuse the patent system in this way." |
