So Samsung is going to stop using FRAND pledged SEPs to try to get injunctions. Good but they should have seen the error of their ways much earlier, since the EU, US, and South Korea are all looking into the matter. Maybe they realized that if they block the iPhone, they would have to start a whole new Galaxy marketing campaign? Ha Now let's see what Google/Moto decides to do, though they will probably wait until the ruling on the MS/Moto case.
This whole situation kinda bugs me. Apple and Kodak have a dispute about digital imaging patents they developed together in the 1990s. The Judge halts that lawsuit until Kodak can emerge from bankruptcy. Kodak is getting a bankruptcy $793 million loan, on condition that Kodak can sell its patents for $500 million. I haven't read any where discussing if the disputed patent is excluded or not. It doesn't make sense that the court would allow Kodak to sell a disputed...
This raises an interesting point. The dumb pipes of the cable companies VS media boxes. I recently read that google is looking to sell of the part of Moto that makes the cable boxes. I would think throwing Android/GoogleTV on millions of cable boxes would be a great strategy for Google.I can only speculate that Google isn't pursuing this strategy bc the cable companies will refuse to buy GoogleTv cable boxes that would diminish their control. ie Netflix and Hulu built into...
I prefer to read all sources too.As for the FOSS link, it's an article somewhere on the blog where he criticizes Nokia. He mentions watching live internet streaming of the UN ITU open sessions and then rightfully complains that the ITU was holding a day or 2 of closed doors sessions. Those close door sessions favored private companies rather than the world population, which the UN ITU is supposed represent.I'll post again on the Moto FRAND arguement but their first 2.4%...
These patent invalidations won't affect the current case finalizing before judge Koh, unless they are final invalidations. I forget the status '381 patent but the '949 won't be totally invalidated or validated until after Koh makes her final decisions. So it seems that this won't have an effect until the appeal.It will be interesting to see if Apple and Samsung settle before an appeal, or if they appeal this and keep the second AppleVSSamsung 2013 trial on track.Judge Koh...
Preliminary should be in the headline
I think Sony lost/losing in TVs for several reasons. Up until recent SmartTVs, the HDTV was a simple monitor. The TV companies weren't adding much value each year while pricing kept declining. Sony kept premium pricing while their HDTVs didn't offer an extra value for the average consumer.The HDTV became a simple monitor, similar to its role on computers. The real value is from the media content and other services that could be used via the display/HDTV. The HDTV value...
I rI remember back in the day 15" and smaller Triniton tubes had one line and 17" and larger screens had 2 lines. Sony said it something to do with electron gun tracking and on screen display accuracy.Tubegate was a bigger deal since the government got involved. I remember buying a 17" NEC CRT for a premium over the 15" CRTs. Then I realized that 17" NEC CRT only had a 15.x" display. Part of the 17 inches were behind the plastic. I returned that display right away and got...
I think you missed some Fosspatents posts, bc he did call out Nokia for their stance at the ITU.Also many of the documents between Nokia and Apple were never made public. They never went to trial so I assume Apple got a deal that they could live with, rather than drawn out litigation and uncertainty.Samsung VS Ericsson. I didn't read it like Ericsson was getting a pass, more like Samsung was being a hypocrit, but he didn't support SEP injunctions for either. If Samsung...
I laugh at you for thinking that any intelligent discourse will happen at any tech website. They all have bias, how much is another question. Only read and respond to those that you view intelligent enough to correspond with
