Submission + - Obama administration vetoes ITC import ban for iPhone/iPad (allthingsd.com)

An anonymous reader writes: On saturday the Obama administration vetoed an import ban for the iPhone 4 & iPad 1 +2. Just hours before the deadline. The iPhone 4S, 5 and the iPads 3+4 were not affected by the import ban 'cause they use a different chipset.
In addition the veto states expressively to pay adhere to FRAND conditions. Furthermore the ITC should consider the impact of SEPs more thoroughly and SEPs shall not be used to block competing products. It's the first time since 1987 that a US administration has vetoed a decision of the ITC.
