#Oracle moves for new #copyright trial against #Google, renews motion for judgment as a matter of law http://bit.ly/29sg2PM #android #java
There is no question that Judge Alsup will deny it. His aforementioned open letter made that clear. He's now just going to hide behind the jury since he accomplished his objective: a verdict in Google's favor. But he may just have to go through the motions process now, and Oracle has requested ...

#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 ...

#Spotify's concerns over #Apple Music are obvious but it's just manufacturing an App Store #antitrust issue http://bit.ly/29gj5e3 $AAPL
I wish to clarify upfront that I've never done any work for Apple or Spotify. A more elaborate disclosure can be found at the end of this post. The perspective from which I am writing this post is that of an app developer who happens to have fought hard for fair, reasonable and ...

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.
