Samsung demanded 2.4 percent of Apple’s iPhone and iPad revenues, which would come to about $18 per phone -- a figure Apple called unreasonable."

Any import ban would have to be reviewed by President Barack Obama and the U.S. Trade Representative, who have the authority to reject an exclusion order on public policy grounds. The last time that happened, President Ronald Reagan in 1987 overturned an import ban on Samsung memory chips. 
(so Samsung was protected once, now they are on opposite side against Apple).
