No, it is more a matter that the case was brought before the newer ones were launched.

Why only older iPhones?

So it is essential to older iPhones but not newer ones? When did essential suddenly become no-essential? I know for sure 3GPP didn't suddenly change its standard. Anyone more familiar know what gives here?

I am not even sure that I agree with the existance of the ITC. Why is it not a standard part of the judicial system? The fact that it is in some ways outside the law is why companies choose to do their battles there. This should be a function of the Court of International Trade.

I doubt very much that Obama would overrule the ITC, which -- as noted -- is an appointed body designed to make informed ruling in the interest of the US.  It would be like the president stepping in to overrule the FCC on Internet regulations, or overruling the EPA in a major environmental decision.   Any US intervention would likely have a minimal impact on the case in the International courts, anyway, because -- as noted -- they make their own decisions.

Moments like this make me want to harken back to Lincoln's promise: "that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain...and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." This frustrating power wrangling/money grabbing needs some practical streamlining. Hope things get cleared up soon.

I have witnessed a trial in the ITC, and it is quite strange. At the beginning of the trial a time limit was set and the judge made it quite clear there would be no extension because he was going on vacation. If the matter had not been srious it would have been comical at times.

Another fascinating moment in the on-going Apple vs. Samsung legal brawl

I was lucky to be abkle to sit in on much of the San Jose case last year.

See  2012-08-10Apple-Samsung trial coverage
Interestingly in June, the White House came out with a report about the negative impacts of aggreessive patent asseretion, recommending, among other things, reining in the heavy use of the ITC.
