The little legal wrangle between Samsung and Nvidia has turned bitter, with Samsung now asking the International Trade Commission (ITC) to outright ban sales of Nvidia hardware in the United States. This comes after Samsung filed suits against Nvidia for false advertising and patent violations in their Tegra K1 processor, which Nvidia claims is the fastest mobile System-on-Chip (SoC) in the world. The request to the ITC now requests a ban on all Geforce graphics cards and all Tegra processors. Nvidia was in the process of counter-claiming that Samsung products that breach their patents ought to be banned from the country. Should this case be won by either party, it’ll set a nasty precedent for any company looking to use patents to block their competitors from taking away their market share in the US.
