An ITC ordered sales ban against certain older Apple devices is supposed to take effect starting August 5th; out of the models affected by the order, only the Apple iPhone 4 and the Apple iPad 2 remain on retailer's shelves.

Apple started this whole thing, so as I see it... turnabout is fair play. Let the sales ban begin.

I don't recall Verizon being very concerned with precedents when Apple got HTC phones banned, or even when Apple tried to get them banned again even after HTC had implemented a workaround.

Sales bans on infringing products have already taken place. A precedent is already set. It's a moot point.

Either Verizon isn't smart enough to figure that out, or there's an ulterior motive.
