I'd love to as well. Guess we'll have to wait until the courts release their records (assuming they document everything said during the proceedings) or for a journalist that was present to further detail the discussions.

Um...  no they didn't. Apple wasn't even mentioned by Google in that regard. That was put to rest months ago when it first came up here.

ummm, it was mentioned in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that was looking into google behavior with regard to Apple and MS and SEP/FRAND patents that Google is attacking them with. They specifically argue that standards should be standard even if not ratified or approved by a standard body but because they have become common.

 

 

 

Quote:
While collaborative [Standards Setting Organizations (SSOs)] play an important part in the overall standard setting system, and are particularly prominent in industries such as telecommunications, they are not the only source of standards. Indeed, many of the same interoperability benefits that the FTC and others have touted in the SSO context also occur when one firm publishes information about an otherwise proprietary standard and other firms then independently decide (whether by choice or of necessity) to make complementary investments to support that standard in their products. … Because proprietary or de facto standards can have just as important effects on consumer welfare, the Committee’s concern regarding the abuse of SEPs should encompass them as well.

They may not have mentioned Apple by name, but they didn't have to. The subject of the hearings was Google's abuses of their patents with Apple and MS. Their comment on that subject, presumably, was related that subject. Whether they named Apple or not, they are arguing to be able to use other people work just because customers like it. They want companies that develop popular ideas to be forced to license those as SEP, under FRAND terms, in the same way a company that actually declared they would with their patents (in order to get them into standards). That is just sneaky, dirty shit.

The subject of Google's mention was Microsoft IP like their FAT patent, properly considered a "de-facto standard" IMHO, that's being asserted against Android vendors to force them into license agreements. You need to understand the context to properly understand some of the arguments.

If it's essential to public progress and improvements I believe they can do just that to me. No one's arguing that it should be free to use of course.

MS or Apple (neither mentioned by name, so either is an assumption) the concept is the same. Once you have popularized it, they want the government to force you to let them use it as though you promised to do so. That is wrong. Companies that obligate themselves to do something should have higher standards of behavior, with regard to those properties, than companies that never promised to do the same with theirs. I wonder, would the be willing to let any and all license their search algorithms. Certainly they are sort of popular in search, so shouldn't everyone be able to offer the same? The government really should step in and force them to license their work, else they ought to seize the patents and make them public domain. Ridiculous, no?

 

Tellingly Apple and MS both pledged, unconditionally,  to honour their FRAND commitments and not block any licensing of those patents. Google was not willing to make the same pledge without conditions that included "good faith negotiations". They have demonstrated what they mean by that with the Motorola arm, by demanding insane royalties amount, just from Apple. Their definition of good faith is a joke. 

 

Unbelievable that people scream and shout about Apple, when the best you can claim is their activities are unwise, questionable and maybe unethical. Meanwhile Google is breaking their pledges, not honouring their commitments, and is under government investigation in the EU, by the DOJ and the FTC, for their behaviors with their monbile patents and their activities with their search monopoly.

Once it's a standard, entirely different different expectations are set as to how much one can charge.

The difference being either:

 

A: Google's search patents are not essential nor even "de-facto essential" since there's no dearth of search engines without Google licensing to the patents, or

 

B. There are competitors with possible infringement of Google IP, but Google doesn't typically sue competitors.

 

Neither of these would apply to Microsoft's overt use of the FAT patent, impossible to work around for all intents, to force a licensing agreement. . . at just a few dollars per device of course. If it's essentially impossible to work around wouldn't you agree it's the definition of "de-facto essential"?

There are many, many alternative file systems companies could use. But FAT has become common. Google search is common too. I would disagree with any government action that forced either to effectively open up their IP to any and all. Just because they have successfully marketed their IP or otherwise made it popular does not mean the government should be able to dictate how they use their property or how much they can charge. If, however, they legally pledge to do so, then the ought to held to the fire to honour those commitments.

Which ones don't fall under the Microsoft FAT claims, at least according to Microsoft? If you can't find "many, many" would you agree that FAT licensing is essential to nearly every modern OS based on Microsoft legal claims, tho it's clear you'd prefer not to?

The stuff that Apple wrote in the statement may have been true but it was completely irrelevant to the purpose of the statement that the UK courts wanted Apple to make. .  The problem is the UK court wanted Apple to CLEARLY make the point that Samsung did not infringe on their patents.  Instead they decided to bury that point in four paragraphs of text, which people may or may not have the patience to read through completely.   If you think that it's okay for Apple to put whatever they want in the statement as long as it's true, then they could have rambled on for several more paragraphs about Grass being Green, the sky being blue, and clouds being white, or any other irrelevant topic by your argument as long as they have that one sentence buried somewhere in there that Samsung didn't infringe.

They buried it? It was the opening paragraph.

Looks like Apple pulled the statement and has yet to post the new one.

It is essential only because those companies chose to use it. Apple used their own. MS uses NFTS for their desktops and servers. SUN/Oracle own a couple. 

 

It is essential only to those that decided FAT. Yes, they did so because it was common and interoperable, but that was still their choice. MS also has a choice how and for how much they choose to license it and to whom. And that is the problem I have with not just seeking to have it (or anything) declared a de-facto standard and subsequently imposing SEP obligations on it. The advantage for a company to submit their IP into a standard is a guaranteed source of licensing fees with the trade off of not being to otherwise monetize or control their IP or using it as leverage. But a company that never pledged to do so with their IP being forced to give up control of their IP, simply because it is popular is wrong. Popularity should not mean losing control of how your IP is used, by whom and for how much, de facto standard or not.

The fact that Apple have printed a statement in today's papers in full compliance with the court goes to show they knew exactly what needed to be done.  They tried to push it as far as they could.

 

Which part of the difference between "I would propose" and "I hereby order", in a legal sense, do you not understand?

Design patents have nothing whatsoever to do with copying.

 

This was made clear by the judges who claimed that Apple, by using the fine legal distinction in their statement, could confuse the general public.

"Proposed" or "ordered", do you understand the difference?

 

Stop avoiding the question.

 

A judge proposing something is not the same as ordering something. "proposing" introduces a gray area, it is "wishy washy", it leaves room for interpretation, which Apple duly took advantage of, opening a can of Samsung whining to the Judges who in turn went whining to Apple, can of worms.

 

One doesn't need to know too much about law when expressing opinions about people making fools of themselves.

Samsung's whining appeal and the Judges' subsequent whining response are based on this "pretty flimsy springboard" as you so handily put it.

post #423 of 446

on a serious note though it's very very sad when companies resort to legal action over stuff like the above.

 

And surely someone somewhere has challenged the patent application?

post #427 of 446
in response to the emoticon legal action:

if the below is correct then this really is a minor lawsuit, only affects one situation:

 

The smiley input method patent would affect only those of Apple's German customers who use Asian on-screen keyboards. The problem with Asian character sets is that smileys can't be entered with only a couple of keystrokes such as ":-)" but consist of several symbols, each of which requires multiple keystrokes. So it's more convenient to enter a special smiley input mode and select them from a list of on-screen choices.

Apparently in Europe when using a mobile device, unless of course you have a license to use this European software patent from Samsung.

 

Apple should bring that one to the UK where it will be immediately thrown out as software based and Samsung will have to publish a notice that Apple is not infringing their emoticon patent.

So are there more asian language iPhone users in Germany or are there more Galaxy Tab 7.7 buyers in Germany?

 

Not that it matters, the fact that Samsung is using it to seek an injunction against Apple is enough according to the Justices of the High Court of England and Wales.

 

My MacBook has these, it's a "mobile device".

Of course Apple uses a completely different method, but that didn't stop Samsung from accusing Apple of copying them.

… Wait, did you go through and double click every single one of those out of the Special Characters menu? Props.

 

Anyway, worldwide software compatibility with emoji is iOS 5 and above and Mac OS 10.7 and above, at least on the Mac side.

 

Can Windows machines even see emoji at all? Even with Windows 8?
