An anonymous reader writes "The US Trade representative has confirm a ban on some Samsung products that infringed on two Apple's patents. The ban will go into effect at midnight.
On August 9, the ITC(International Trade Commission) ruled that Samsung products violated two of Apple patents. Thus, some Samsung smartphones and tablets will not be sold or imported in the US.
US Trade representatives Michael Froman, who overturned the ban on Apple products where it was revealed the Cupertino company infringed on Samsung patent on August 3, rejected an appeal from Samsung; he could have overturned the ban just as he did on Apple. But he did not."
