#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 ...

Leadership of European Patent Office blocks examiners' access to directory of potential prior art http://bit.ly/1O5o8se TechRights
Somehow the leadership of the European Patent Office manages to demonstrate at least once per month in one or more contexts that it is far more concerned about public debate and the consequences it could have on some people's posts there, and far more interested in self-aggrandizement and ...

17 Members of the European Parliament raise questions about human rights situation at the EPO http://bit.ly/1INk7Vx
As I reported last week, the human rights conflict at the European Patent Office continues and certain national governments acknowledge that there is an issue (or, more precisely, a host of issues). Political pressure on the EPO leadership, including the Administrative Council (which has so far ...

1,000 EPO employees took to the streets of Munich to protest hidden surveillance, other violations  http://bit.ly/1eIrciN
About two months after I expressed the opinion that potential union recognition by the European Patent Office (after some 40 years of existence) would be insufficient to solve the social conflict there, it turns out that things have not only failed to improve but actually deterioriated.

The so-called data protection officer of the EPO signed off on keylogging, hidden cameras  http://bit.ly/1Bb0Uzz what a dereliction of duty
Given Germany's experience with totalitarian surveillance states before and (in the eastern part) after World War II, I wonder for how long Germany's chancellor and minister of justice, as well as the Bundestag (parliament), can tolerate an international organization on German soil that appears ...

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 ...

Oracle v. Google copyright case continues in California: status conference to be held on July 30  http://bit.ly/1Cj7Cno #android #java
It's been a few years since I last woke up to a significant procedural order ("signficant" as opposed to lawyers' appearances being approved) in Oracle v. Google. A few years too many for Oracle, which wants this resolved, but not for Google, which never went out of its way to accelerate ...

Linus Torvalds' Google+ post about Oracle wasting money on (c) appeal, "idiocy", curse of Linus always being right https://plus.google.com/+LinusTorvalds/posts/TZsT2BP3TDh Who was the moron here? Not Oracle. This much is certain.

Linus Torvalds, who rationalizes away Linux not being able to deal with "leap seconds" because the entirely predictable event comes along so infrequently.  Linus Torvalds, the prince of time.

Samsung requests full-court review of appellate decision on Apple's design patents: claim construction, damages http://bit.ly/1fk5qBV
Samsung filed a petition yesterday for an en banc (full-court) rehearing concerning the design patents-related issues relating to the Federal Circuit's mid-May appellate opinion in the first Apple v. Samsung case. Apple did not file a petition concerning the part that was unfavorable to it (the ...
