#Ericsson may demand 1.5% of #Apple's sales from LTE-compatible iPhones and iPads for its #patents http://bit.ly/1u8dCvD #frand #standards
Apple's complaint was filed by Wilmer Hale, one of the firms representing Apple against Samsung. Wilmer Hale originally focused on Apple's defense against Samsung but also became involved with offensive matters, especially in the Federal Circuit (access to injunctive relief).

I understand Apple's desire for a sales ban and I said before that, while Samsung doesn't need to infringe the related patents , an injunction would make Apple look and feel better.

Deafening silence from software industry presents credibility problem for #Google 's Supreme Court petition http://bit.ly/1tjWih4 #java #android #copyright #oracle
Google's brief states at the very start that Oracle couldn't "dispute the exceptional importance of the question presented" and goes on to emphasize, as the document also does toward the end, "the seven amicus briefs representing the views of more than two dozen industry leaders, 77 pioneering ...
