To get Obama to overturn the US Trade Commission ruling against Apple?
The Washington Post reports:
Apple Inc. faces a ban on imports of some older devices including the iPhone 4 after a U.S. trade agency said they infringe a patent owned by Samsung Electronics Co., its biggest competitor in the global market for smartphones.
It’s the first patent ruling against Apple in the U.S. that affects product sales, covering models of the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3, iPad 3G and iPad 2 3G made for AT&T Inc. The U.S. International Trade Commission announced its decision in a notice posted on its website.
The import ban is subject to review by President Barack Obama, who can overturn the decision on public-policy grounds, and Apple will be able to import the devices without having to post a bond during the 60-day presidential review period. [Emphasis added]
