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"...

#Google joins the Fair Standards Alliance: discontinued the bad fight, now fighting the good fight  http://bit.ly/1MY0fSD #frand #patents
The following press release by the Brussels-based Fair Standards Alliance would have been nothing more than an April Fools' Day joke a few years ago (this post continues with commentary below the press release): --- START OF PRESS RELEASE ---. Google Joins Fair Standards Alliance ...

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 ...

New #Oracle filing might result in damages theory north of $10 billion in #Google #copyright case http://bit.ly/1RK7KlD #android #java
"Prof. Kearl's Oracle Number is consistent with Oracle's $8.8 billion, and is in fact much larger than Oracle's $8.8 billion if the Court excludes his improper use of NIAs. Presumably Rule 706 experts do not often offer a number larger than the Plaintiff intends to offer." ...

Disgorgement of infringer's profits in #Apple v. #Samsung and #Oracle v. #Google: apportionment is key  http://bit.ly/1RxW8yv #damages
At times I wish I knew everything about the cases I follow that the litigators working on them know, but it's possible that at times they wish they had the liberty to be as consistent in their positions on policy as an independent blogger--more independent than ever since I started the blog--can ...

Supreme Court petition 15-777 (Samsung v. Apple) closely watched by IP lawyers, relisted for this Friday http://bit.ly/21uuzuJ  #appsung
Earlier this month (on Friday, March 4), the Supreme Court of the United States already had Samsung's December 2015 petition for writ of certiorari (request for Supreme Court review) in Apple's design patents case on its agenda. It's nothing unusual for a case to be relisted, and it happened in ...
