EMI Admits DRM Does Not Work
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, October 05 2012 @ 04:31 PM EDT
It says that the only way to move music around involves making duplicates, and there is is no way to guarantee all the original owner's copies of the files have been deleted.
BBC

Sure, some kids will have toys that break ReDigi's system, but those kids already have DRM breakers anyhow. Seems like the XXAA are prime candidates for re-education.

Motorola wins something against Microsoft . Reuters is useless
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, October 05 2012 @ 08:56 PM EDT
That is all I can tell from this awful article.

For shame Reuters...

http://ca.reuters.com/article/businessNews/idCABRE8940HG2012
1005

"Motorola Mobility, part of Google, did not infringe a
Microsoft patent which enables applications to work on
different handsets."

Oh great. Glad that's a specific patent then. Either someone
at Reuters or the patent office needs to be fired. And
possibly executed.

LXer.com is pointing to a TechDirt article titled Early Inventor Of Streaming Video Wants To Help Fight Off Video Streaming Patent Trolls. Bookmarking this information would probably be useful to anyone involved in streaming video and associated payment systems for purchasing video content.

return on the money spent on the free and open source software
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, October 06 2012 @ 03:57 PM EDT
http://it.slashdot.org/story/12/10/06/1621228/ad-group-says-
internet-accounts-for-51m-us-jobs-37-of-gdp

"A Harvard Business School study sponsored by the
Interactive Advertising Bureau shows that the ad-supported
Internet is responsible for 5.1 million jobs in the U.S.
two million direct and 3.1 million indirect. They report
that the Internet accounted for 3.7% of 2011 GDP. The
research, development and procurement that launched the
Internet back in the 1970s and 1980s cost the US taxpayers
$124.5 million at the time not a bad investment!"

Can you imagine the return on the money spent on the free
and open source software!

That would be a relevant study for the Congress.

Apple, Microsoft, and Adobe contributed a joint submission ...
Three Little Pigs? No, they were small and mostly good.
Three Musketeers? For all the trouble they got into they were on the winning side.
Maybe these or these or p'raps these ?

Motorola wins patent case against Microsoft in Germany
Authored by: JamesK on Sunday, October 07 2012 @ 10:52 AM EDT
"The regional court in Mannheim, Germany, ruled that Moto didn't infringe a
Microsoft patent which lets apps work across different handsets, Reuters
reports. The patent means developers don't have to write separate codes for each
handset, saving time and development costs."

How is something like that even patentable? Linux (and Unix before it) is
easily moved to new computers because it was written in C and easily ported to
the new hardware. How is this any different? Also, aren't Java apps by nature
platform independent? Even long before C and Java, FORTRAN and COBOL software
was more or less easily moved between computers.
