FORTUNE -- Friday was a busy day for Apple (AAPL) legal.
How much longer do we have to wait?
A decision on e-book remedies should come down in a few weeks, although the appeals process could drag on for years. Barring an (unlikely) Presidential veto, the ITC import ban takes effect in 60 days.

Meanwhile, William Lee, representing Apple at the Appeals Court, delivered a set speech that puts as concisely as I've seen it the history of Apple v. Samsung as it looks from Cupertino's point of view:
"Apple spent five years and $5 billion designing a product. It was a revolutionary product. It's hard for most of us to remember what a phone looked like in 2007, but it was revolutionary. Samsung looked at it initially and said "this is easily copied, but we don't need to because it's going to be unsuccessful." Two years later they had a summit and decided to copy it. And they spent three months -- three months -- copied it and brought it to market. And the result was ... you see what happened to the market share."
