    What I find odd about the whole thing is that in every other country that Apple has sued to block Samsung, Samsung has won in the end. Samsung has even won major concessions from Apple in other countries as they were able to prove Apple stole their ideas and patents.

    The best part is that the Apple phones contain more Samsung parts in them than any other company. All Samsung needs to do is stop selling to Apple and Apple would have to lower their quality to keep the phones going or stop selling what they have and come out with something new.

    Samsung is the leader in touchscreen technology. They may not have the software patents, but they do have the important hardware ones.

    I think if we are going to block items coming into this country due to a patent violation on appeal, all other countries should block the Apple products that were deemed to be in violation of Samsung patents. There are more outside of the US than in it.

    Either we all play fair, or no one plays.

    I think this conviction should give port authorities in the right to confiscate and destroy all these phone products coming in to the US, even if their has been a repeal filed. They should not be able to sell, keep, or return to Korea any products during the appeal process.

    I think this should be grounds to confiscate and destroy many products and importing being done by illegal foreign labor that has caused many US companions to go out of business and workers losing their jobs. A violation of the economic laws that are outlined in the Federal Labor Law Act and immigration laws. Limiting imports and confiscating the contraband is a justified and legal process sovereign to the rights of the American citizens and their labor rights.
