UK Court Invalidates Samsung SEP (v Apple)
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, March 07 2013 @ 06:45 PM EST
Apple defeats Samsung in High Court patent battle - Telegraph

Not many 'good' sources for the story available as yet. Others seem to be celebrating more than covering the story, mentioning necessity to license as FRAND when it was not yet relevant to the case. Claims seem to be invalid because of prior art or obviousness rather than because of any 'software' aspect of patentability? (- as previously found in UK cases).

Video story - defending against a Patent Troll
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, March 07 2013 @ 07:11 PM EST
H ow Patent Trolls Kill Innovation - YouTube

Austin Meyer, a software developer and aviation enthusiast created a flight simulator called X-Plane. As many software developers do, Meyer made his application available on mobile devices like the iPhone and Android. And this is where he first ran into trouble.

A company called Uniloc has sued Meyer for patent infringement over a patent called, "System and Method for Preventing Unauthorized Access to Electronic Data." (This is the way that his (Android?) app is bought online)

German Court to Ban Google Maps
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, March 08 2013 @ 12:32 AM EST

FM is a sensationalist and should be ignored.

Because Microsoft cannot force Google to sign deals with them in Germany, it will take much much more than banning Google maps.

Given FM's apparent allergy to the truth, what is the truth in this case ?

Forget Fair Dealing: National Post Seeks $150 To License Short Excerpts
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, March 08 2013 @ 03:20 AM EST
...if someone wants to post a quote from Selley or anything else written by the National Post, they are now presented with pop-up box seeking a licence that starts at $150 for the Internet posting of 100 words with an extra fee of 50 cents for each additional word (the price is cut in half for non-profits).

FM based article.
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, March 08 2013 @ 07:15 AM EST
What's his accuraccy rate again?

It's somewhere close to 100% wrong, isn't it?

So I would take away that the German Court is certainly *NOT* going to ban
Google Maps, based on all the evidence.

That site can't be taken seriously.

If you are quoting the whole article that pushes the boundary of fair use unless
you are the author (which you may be if so identify yourself)

Please remove the article.

Consider the source

And realize it must mean exactly the opposite of what it says... Florian's
consistency is amazing.

Can one use data from when the National Socialist Party ran Germany, in a
court case in Germany in 2013? The only difference is that Germany used pen

and paper, with people putting pins on where the geographic locations are,
instead of a machine putting virtual pins on the map.

You have proof?

Florian's accuracy is so bad that I don't believe anything he posts. Do you
have proof of this from another, reliable, source?

You quoted too much. Provide a paragraph or
so at most. Then a plain text link.

Or ignore the guy. Your choice.

Meanwhile, watch what the stock does, and in
a couple of months, we'll see if the prediction
comes true. If not, I'll write about it then.
