there is no peace when your only option of "peace" is to bow down to tyranny. True peace is holding the biggest gun.

As much as I love Sammy and my Galaxy S3 I just have a feeling that this wont happen. I mean I don't know I would LOVE for this to happen but I just can't imagine it. Here's to hoping Samsung has some strong arguments.!!!!

No time to feel the slightest of sympathy for them or have doubt that apple wont get what is coming, as ive stated above, apple MUST get what is coming!...........Apple is trying to raise the bar on samsung as we speak......remember that earlier article that said apple is trying to get 3 billion out of samung instead of 1?

well what does that tell you? apple has no sympathy for others so why should samsung? we have to remember all the dirty tricks they have pulled so far in order to keep the foot on the gas, because once again....apple has NOOO intentions of letting up!

gawd I hope they get the injunction. Even if its for a week, it would freak Apple the heck out. Maybe they would realize they are A-holes and need to start cooperating with the industry instead of trying to rule it with an iron fist and army of lawyers.

Actually it is good for Samsung's sales if they get an injunction. If the iPhone is pulled off shelves for even just a few days, it would turn people who passed on a Galaxy Siii because they figured iPhone was coming out to turn around and buy a Samsung phone because they may not be aware how long the injunction could last.

Or it would bring a huge amount of animosity towards Samsung considering how fanatical a good portion of their user base is about getting their iPhones. They would complain about it being illegal, prompt an investigation along with the demonization of Samsung. Of course that would mostly be in the US.

In the US it appears Apple can do no wrong... and they're American as apple pie...

Which is good... the more stories the more income, no stories means no money for the bloggers and their articles.

It would be funny if this phone got ban the day its going to be released but we know thats not going to happen...

I just want to see the reaction of those crazies whose been camping outside the sidewalk for their new phone since who knows how many days. No other company have crazy customers willing to camp outside just waiting for a phone.

That statement (thermonuclear war) was more like threat coming from Mulla Omar of Taliban. Honestly such words don't suit the stature of "The most valubale Company" and also those who got pleasure out of such statements :(

Peace, some people said. Yes, everyone wanted peace but who started the war? What do you expect people to do? Fight back of course, naturally. If not, we'll be going "Heil Hitler!" now...

Samsung will have pressure on it from the major carriers, at least in the States. I support their effort in protecting their intellecual property, but it will be a bit different than when apple went after Samsung for design.

Samsung will have to blink and settle for licensing. If Apple never approached them for a licensing agreement prior to making the iPhone 5, while knowing full wel they were in violation, punitive damages should also be awarded. This isn't about Apple,Samsung, or any other organization. It's about right vs. wrong and the punishment should reasonably fit the crime.

so you think apple is going to end up paying samsung instead of getting banned?

When do Apple ever pay for licensing? They just incorporate other's work and drag out negotiations. They haven't paid a penny for 3g.
