Prof. Jorge Contreras Quoted in Bloomberg Story on the Lastest in the Samsung-Apple Patent DisputesOver the weekend, the Obama Administration overtuned the International Trade Commission (ITC) ban on certain models of iPads and iPhones. The ITC had found that these particular models infringed Standards-Essential Patents, and had issued an order preventing Apple from importing them.
PIJIP Professor Jorge Contreras was interviewed by Bloomberg news for their story on this development in the ongoing Apple-Samsung patent battles. He told Bloomberg: “It’s the product-based companies versus the patent-based companies. The product companies don’t want to be bothered with the threats of having their products stopped because they can’t come to an agreement.”
