10/14/2011, In the whole Apple vs Samsung saga, Apple has been basing their arguments of patent infringement largely upon the design and look of Samsung’s products, claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet resembles their iPad. Samsung on the other hand is using hardware as their argument, claiming that Apple was infringing upon wireless technology patents used in their iPhones and 3G iPads. However while Apple has been seeing success […]
10/13/2011, In a case brought by Apple against Samsung in the USA, Judge Lucy Koh (San Jose, CA) seems to lean on Apple’s side, especially when it comes to the design aspect of the lawsuit. However, she did not yet rule that Samsung products should be banned in the U.S, for now. Actually, she denied one out of three claims from Apple.
10/13/2011, Yesterday we reported that Samsung would be modifying a number of its Galaxy phones just so that they can sell them in the Netherlands, but we didn’t know what modifications were made. Well, the folks over at Sammyhub.com got in touch with the company and found out what some of the modifications will be. One of the revamped features will be an alternative to “photo flicking” when looking at photos […]
10/10/2011, It might seem rather strange that Twitter does not yet own the “tweet” or “Tweet” trademark – but I guess all of that has changed now. Apparently, the word is a registered trademark of a company known as Twittad, where they claim to be “the largest and most effective form of sponsored advertising on Twitter.” The company actually trademarked the word “tweet” after making the most of its slogan “Let […]
10/10/2011, Intellectual property has certainly gotten a whole lot more valuable in recent memory with patents being filed left and right by companies who are out to protect their inventions. We all know that Samsung and Apple have no love lost between them (especially in Europe), and in the US, Verizon and T-Mobile have voiced out their opinions that should Apple actually emerge victorious in their current lawsuits against Samsung, there […]
10/10/2011, The Amazon Kindle Fire was announced a few weeks back, and with a launch scheduled for the 15th of November, it looks like the tablet is under fire for allegedly infringing upon patents belonging to Smartphone Technologies whose parent company is Acacia Research. If the company Smartphone Technologies sounds familiar, it is because they have gone after Apple and RIM in the past, similarly claiming patent infringement, and it looks […]
10/07/2011, Here we go again with yet another patent infringement lawsuit, and this time Motorola seems to be the target. Patent licensing company, Intellectual Ventures, has filed a lawsuit against Motorola, claiming that the company had infringed upon six of their patents.
10/04/2011, Uh-oh, it looks like the patent trolls are back, and this time a company called Innovatio is attempting to sue small hotels and coffee shops for offering WiFi services. Yes, you read that right – a feature that we readily expect from most coffee shops and WiFi services is apparently under attack by Innovatio.
10/04/2011, About a week ago, Samsung came forward and offered Apple a deal that would allow them to continue selling their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets in Australia. Given that Christmas is only a couple of months away, obviously Samsung wanted their products to be available in time for the festive shopping season, but it looks like Apple has decided to decline their offer.
10/03/2011, Samsung might come to an agreement with Apple to cut a deal in Australia so that they can sell their wares Down Under after numerous legal battles sparking off between both companies around the world. According to Bloomberg, a Sydney court was informed that Samsung had already given Apple a proposal to end its dispute, although the legal eagles over at Cupertino are still weighing the offer.
09/30/2011, The patent war between Apple and Samsung seems to be ongoing with no end in sight, or so it seemed until Samsung decided to step forward and offer Apple a deal which would allow them to sell their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Australia in time for the holidays.
09/27/2011, Despite stealing the iPhone exclusivity away from AT&T earlier this year, it looks like the Big Red carrier still has a high regard for Android devices. It has been reported that Verizon has sided with Samsung to fight against Apple. Just in case you haven’t been keeping abreast of what’s been going on – Apple has sued Samsung for allegedly copying the design of the iPhone and iPad, and wants […]
09/26/2011, A few days ago we reported that Samsung was reported to have requested for a ban of the iPhone and 3G iPad in the Netherlands, claiming that Apple had infringed upon their patents which included a form of wireless technology used for 3G communications, which explains why the WiFi-only iPad was left untouched. In our report we stated that Apple had scheduled a meeting with Samsung on Monday in order […]
09/26/2011, Apple has certainly inflicted a few notable blows towards Samsung by getting injunctions against the South Korean conglomerate that prevents them from selling their tablets and smartphones in certain countries around the world, and even in Australia, Samsung will still need to wait until the end of the month before the judge decides on whether Apple Inc.’s patent-infringement claims have any basis to them to warrant a sales ban.
