Mark D. Simpson and Rajesh Nair, members of the Intellectual Property & Technology Practice, wrote this article discussing the high-profile dispute between Apple and Samsung, which almost led to Apple being prohibited from importing and selling its iPhone and iPad devices in the United States. In this particular case, the U.S. International Trade Commission issued orders against Apple, which were disapproved by the President - a rarity. The authors explain what led to the disapproval and where the case stands today.
