Question on Patent News
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 16 2012 @ 07:35 AM EST
Well I guess you all remember how it got started:
http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/when-patents-attack-android.html
Google Senior VP & Chief Legal Officer mentions two patent pools there:
Novell/CPTN (DoJ forced them to license out their IP) and Nortel/Rockstar. The
latter got no repute from DoJ and no Apple seems to be silently misusing it:

11?op=1
Any reason why DoJ cared only about one pool and not the other?

Interesting, it seems my interpretation of the Verge article was wrong
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 16 2012 @ 07:44 AM EST
Apple will be able to name several products it's been anxious to accuse — including the Galaxy Note 10.1, all versions of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that were distributed on the Galaxy Nexus, and the Galaxy S III.

Either that, or the Verge article was wrong. I read it to mean that the software itself was now accused - allbeit in the forms used on the Galaxy Nexus device alone. My understanding was that this would then be potentially extendible to other Android 4.1 products by other manufacturers as the features are not "colorably different".

Seems like that was wrong. Even so, I'm guessing a hypothetical injunction against the Galaxy Nexus on the basis of Android 4.1 features would set some precedent for future cases against other devices / manufacturers - though each case would have to be tried separately. It would also have massive FUD value.

Google still need to defend this vigorously.

BusinessWeek and its variable coverage
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 16 2012 @ 11:03 AM EST

BusinessWeek often has problems in covering Legal and Technical news.
Their reporting ranges from good to terrible, with most of it being at the
terrible end of the spectrum.

I always check their reporting now. It's the only way to be safe.

Apple Can't Add Jelly Bean to Apple v. Samsung 2 Trial, only Galaxy Nexus ~pj
Authored by: vadim on Sunday, November 18 2012 @ 04:22 AM EST
PJ It seems that you're mistaken here. Apple CAN add Jelly Bean to the lawsuit.

"Apple’s similarly-situated motion to amend to add the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Jelly Bean operating system in connection with the Galaxy Nexus, the nonsubstantive clarifying changes, 51 the claims charts previously listed in the Claim Summary Table, and the pen stylus claims against additional products is GRANTED"
