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."
