It happens every summer. We get all excited with the hype for an upcoming blockbuster, and it turns out to be a dud. Last week, Judge Posner wearied of the pretrial drama between Apple and Motorola and effectively told everyone that the show is over, now go home.
Meanwhile, fearing delays to their upcoming trial, Apple wouldn't pull the trigger on requesting an injunction against Samsung, so Judge Koh will not stop the Galaxy S III from landing on U.S. store shelves. Join us, won't you, for another gripping week of Law & Apple.
No matter which way you look at, there’s likely a divorce coming between Apple and Google, onetime pals whose relations have soured the more Android gains a foothold in the smartphone and tablet markets. Thankfully for Apple fans, developers seem to have already chosen a side and continue to do their best (and first) work on the iOS platform. So saddle up to the bar and drink in some facts and figures on these great tech titans in our recap for this Thursday, June 7, 2012.
Apple's biggest trial to date in their ongoing global fight against Android is set to begin next Monday, as Cupertino goes up against Motorola in Chicago. The past few days have been crazy-busy for the judge in this case, as he does what can to keep the two companies fighting a clean fight. Let's catch up on the last minute rulings.
Apple responds to the Department of Justice's antitrust lawsuit, Judge Posner gets a little snarky, and "somebody" is dragging Cupertino's two best patents back to court.
Will Cupertino's strategy against the DOJ work? Did Motorola really think Judge Posner would allow that? And who could it be that has such an interest in seeing Apple's patents tossed? Join us for another week of Law & Apple!
Apple won three significant courtroom battles against Samsung this past week in California and down in Florida, it seems Motorola's eyes were bigger than its stomach. Also, Cupertino lawyers have a prett-ay, prett-ay, prett-ay good week as they prep for some major upcoming U.S. lawsuits. Join us for another week of Law & Apple as we will lay the law happenings.
Motorola -- and by Motorola we mean Google and the Android operating system -- now faces a serious threat in the looming trial against Apple set to begin this summer. And just in case that was not enough to keep the competition up at night, Apple hooked up with a former arch rival to double-team Motorola in Europe.
Temperatures are rising in the global patent wars, so let's get a "dun dun" going and check out the details in this week's Law & Apple.
The blogosphere is discovering that discovery requests in lawsuits can be complicated. Sometimes, what seems like a huge win for one company is really just a procedural maneuver to limit their eventual losses.
Cue the “dun dun” and let’s review what has happened so far between Apple and Motorola, including yesterday’s ruling that is not the loss for Apple many people are saying it is.
It was Google’s decision to get into the phone business with launch of the Android operating system that led to Apple’s extremely aggressive courtroom maneuverings, but Cupertino has yet to drag Google into the courtroom. Apparently, all of that is about to change.
It was always about Apple vs. Google, and the one-time friends (and now fast frenimies) are soon to be directly involved in the same case. As the plot thickens, can you hear that dun-dun sound in the background?
