  • Lawsuit claims iPhone and other Apple devices infringe on wireless patents

    These entities file in districts that are friendly to their type of lawsuits. They’re stacking the deck in their favor by filing where they file. This court is, obviously, one of them.

    Probably not against the newspaper. Freedom of speech and the press would likely quash that. But if someone brought the story to the paper’s attention I suppose Apple might be able to go after them. What I mean is if John Doe concocts the bogus tests for whatever reason (to get his name out as a researcher, to promote his lab, to lay groundwork for a suit against Apple, etc.,) and gives the story to the paper then he, rather than the paper, might be on the hook. But it would be hard to prove.
    The press has no freedom from slander. They never have. 
    In this case would be very hard to prove. For slander you need to show that they did that on purpose, rather than it just being "sloppy job" as one famous dude recently put it.
    That’s all fine and understood. But freedom of the press doesn’t protect the press from being sued for slander as the poster I was responding to insinuated.
