Possible ban of all Toyota hybrids?

http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/toy...us-market-ban/

"Bloomberg reports that the US International Trade Commission has launched a probe of alleged patent violations which could result in the banning of all Toyota hybrids from the US market..."

This is why we should be doing business with American companies. They are respectable because Americans have a high standard of ethics in business. We punish those who conduction violations, and this time we might be banning some of their products from our respectable market.

Sales won't be halted or banned, I guarantee that. More likely the plaintiff will get royalty payments out the ass.
