#Airbus (the COMPANY, not a plane) hijacked by #patent extremists, joined trolls' lobbying entity named IP Europe http://bit.ly/28JYIT2
With respect to standard-essential patent licensing, my preferred European voice of reason(ableness) is the Fair Standards Alliance, an organization Google recently joined and which I'd like to see Apple and Samsung team up with at some point. On the other end of the spectrum, there's a lobbying ...

#Oracle v. #Google: jury finds in favor of 'fair use', as no reasonable, properly-instructed jury could have http://bit.ly/25kJF9T #java
Courtroom tweeters in San Francisco have just reported that the Oracle v. Google retrial jury has found in favor of Google, i.e., has determined that Android's use of the declaring code and structure, sequence and organization of 37 Java APIs is "fair use." This is the outcome of a rigged (for ...

The biggest problem for the #Oracle v. #Google retrial: Judge Alsup's reality distortion field http://bit.ly/1XmMp43 #googacle #copyright
As an observer of two major disputes that started in the Northern District of California, Apple v. Samsung and Oracle v. Google, I have repeatedly taken issue with Judge Lucy Koh's unwilligness to invalidate bad patents, but all in all I'm still glad she has been nominated for the Ninth Circuit ...

Where will the 'friends of the Supreme Court' come down on #designpatent damages in #Apple v. #Samsung? http://bit.ly/1W3aA8x #scotus
In March, the Supreme Court granted Samsung's petition for writ of certiorari with respect to design patent damages. Thankfully, the top U.S. court will interpret a statute that the Federal Circuit and Judge Koh in the Northern District of California believe allows an unapportioned disgorgement ...

Amicus curiae briefs in Samsung v. Apple (design patent damages): all the documents and key points http://bit.ly/1S1u5q0 #appsung #scotus
There never was any doubt that the question of whether the infringement of a single design patent by a complex, multifunctional product warrants an unapportioned disgorgement of profits would be an extraordinarily important one. Previous rounds of amicus curiae briefs already demonstrated ...

Filing deadline tomorrow: Samsung to make its case against total-profit disgorgement over design patent infringement http://bit.ly/1THZq3n
More than two months ago, the Supreme Court of the United States granted Samsung's petition for writ of certiorari (request for top-court review) regarding design patent damages, which was supported by Google, Facebook and other tech giants. Tomorrow, Samsung has to file its opening brief.

Here's a MOUNTAIN of willful-infringement evidence the Oracle v. Google jury won't see in trial phase one http://bit.ly/1TcKOZy #googacle
"From 2012 to 2014, the law in this case held that the declaring lines of code and the structure, sequence, and organization were not copyrightable. That was reversed by the 2014 ruling of the Federal Circuit, but an issue for us in this follow-on trial is whether and to what extent the jury may ...

Consider this - Microsoft copied the CP/M API when it made DOS. It did that to achieve compatibility. Also consider that copyright is automatic and lasts about 150 years. If we change the rules today on the understanding that it is fair use to clone an API, then this decision is going to give the current owner of CP/M (Novell) legal precedent to take down Microsoft.

#Oracle v. #Google #copyright retrial won't bring clarification on application programming interfaces (APIs) http://bit.ly/1SWpPxq #java
This is not a prediction of the outcome. While I'm as convinced as ever that there is hardly a clearer case of UNfair use than this one (let me just refer you to two previous blog posts on this question: "Fair use" is a fairy tale, Google Books comparison), the trial is a tossup.

#Oracle fundamentally disagrees with Judge Alsup on how to instruct jury on fair use in #Google case http://bit.ly/1V4PdCU #android #java
On a recent occasion, Judge Alsup has correctly stated what the Federal Circuit ruled to be copyright-protected in this case (unlike in an order earlier in the build-up to the May retrial). But when I read his draft jury instructions on fair use for the upcoming Android-Java copyright retrial, ...

Jury instructions are derived from the elements of the case. How could there be argument over that, I wonder.
Unless of course, Oracle's argument includes "the law does not apply to us, neener neener neener"...
