The LHC will produce its first physics data at 14 TeV in 2008 and has the promise of making groundbreaking discoveries with the first few femtobarns of data. This will certainly have profound implications for the complete high energy physics program. It is now time to examine the scenarios that may occur in the early phase of the LHC operation and investigate their impact for ILC physics.
