Older Samsung Products Face Ban After ITC Ruling

Some older Samsung Electronics Co. mobile devices face a sales and import ban in the United States after a U.S. trade panel ruled for Apple Inc. in a high-profile patent infringement case. The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that South Korea's Samsung infringes on portions of two Apple Inc. patents on digital mobile devices, covering the detection of headphone jacks and operation of touchscreens.
