Sharp tries to ban Samsung LED TV US shipment in Q2

Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s largest maker of LCD televisions, may be barred from selling TVs and computer monitors in the U.S. after losing a patent case filed by Sharp Corp. imposed. The agency said it wanted to consider the effect of such a ban on “competitive conditions in the U.S. economy,” according to a notice posted on the ITC Web site. Detail news refer to Bloomberg News on 9 Sept.

However my point is that this will hamper Samsung’s export and in turn slow down their LED
The U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington today said Samsung violated Sharp’s patent rights and ordered both sides to submit arguments on whether an import ban should be BLU manufacturing facilities in China and LCD TV production lines.

On the other Hand, LG, the world second maker will definite be shipping more to USA. The No. 1 US exporter Vizio would be eating up more market share of Samsung in USA. On the other hand, we may be able to buy a cheaper Samsung LED TV in Asia as they will ship those TV to the neigbouring country in Asia and Europe. I see no reason that Samsung will have to put a brake on their production as to maintain the World No. 1 Shipment on TV for the consecutive 15 Quarters.
