So what Open RAN seems to be is a US 5G patent pool, which in order for it to work either needs to steal patents from Nokia, Ericsson and Huawei (and other non-US contributors) or bully them to agree to license their Patents to Open RAN on terms favourable to the US.

Naturally, the companies that will have goods stopped by US trade officials will be consumer devices from companies such as Samsung - all above board and in accordance with the US's take on WTO's rules.
