Before #Apple collects a dime from #Samsung, its first California case may already have fallen apart http://bit.ly/1JxlTtS #patents
Apple's anti-Android/anti-Samsung patents are an endangered species in every jurisdiction in which they get challenged (and may soon be an extinct species in Europe), except for the Northern District of California, where Judge Lucy Koh has so far acted as if she was the World Wildlife Fund for ...

U.S. patent office considers #Apple's D'677 iPhone design #patent invalid on multiple grounds  http://bit.ly/1HSrLwC #appsung #icourt
Interesting things are still happening from time to time in connection with the generally much less interesting patent dispute between Apple and Samsung. Three months after the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit vacated $380 million in damages, thus necessitating a third ...

That sucks for Apple. Sometimes I look at these patent filings for designs for many products and I agree, they look way to vague and obvious. I still don't see how Apple was able to patent a rectangle with rounded corners like if such a shape was never invented before.

#Nokia completes next stage of transformation into #patent #troll with sale of HERE to automotive consortium http://bit.ly/1VWb1iM
The buyers are Audi, BMW, and Daimler. I once did a consulting project, unrelated to this transaction and more generally about IP strategy, for one of them (I closed my consulting business about a year ago, however, in order to focus on app development). It's a really positive sign that these ...

#Oracle seeks to supplement #Java #copyright complaint against #Google: 40 #Android releases, one billion users  http://bit.ly/1MpbSoW
On the eve of a status report requested by Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California in the Oracle v. Google remand proceedings, Oracle has shown once again that, as I've been saying for a long time and many media reports still misstate, the Android-Java copyright case is about ...

Google defeats Apple in Germany's highest court: slide-to-unlock not a patentable invention  http://bit.ly/1PQHF12 15 judges agree on this
Well over a year ago, Apple and Google announced an armistice under which they withdrew all pending patent infringement lawsuits against one another. I described that one as a second-class settlement from a position of mutual weakness. I still stand by that assessment, with one modification: ...

#Samsung tells Federal Circuit it will appeal #Apple's design #patent win to the Supreme Court http://bit.ly/1MEzhDl #scotus #certiorari
This week my most popular blog post in a long time brought to light the fact that the United States Patent and Trademark Office now believes one of Apple's iPhone design patent underlying the bulk of a $540 million judgment against Samsung shouldn't have been granted in the first place since it ...

#Oracle and #Google agree on scope of supplemental #Android-#Java #copyright infringement complaint http://bit.ly/1J0C8Wp
A few key facts about the supplemental complaint: The additional Android versions Oracle says infringe its copyrights just like previous versions allegedly did are: Gingebread (released in December 2010). Honeycomb (released in February 2011). Ice Cream Sandwich (released in October 2011) ...

Google, Facebook, HP, others warn a company could lose its entire profits due to a single patented icon  http://bit.ly/1CTnSvN #appsung
I have no problem with what Apple's filing says, at least none that I would have been able to identify without a lot of research, but I do have a huge problem with what it does not say. For a truly great company like Apple the objective should not merely be to defend a favorable ruling but also ...
