Facing a jury trial next month with $840 million in potential damage claims on the line in a dispute over alleged e-book price fixing, Apple has instead decided to settle out of court to make the problem go away.
Despite recent rumors to the contrary, it appears consumer electronics titans Apple and Samsung may actually be no closer to settling their differences over patents — especially when attorneys for the Korean manufacturer have resorted to name-calling.
Remember the so-called "Antennagate" crisis? While it seems like forever ago that iPhone 4 users whined about antenna problems with their handsets, they'll probably be reminded about it when their settlement check hits the mailbox.
If you've even casually followed the strange saga of Proview, the company who claimed to own the iPad trademark in China, you may see them as a fly-by-night. After reading this, you might think they're a bunch of deadbeats, too.
Samsung has suffered mostly defeat in the courtroom lately in its patent battles against Apple, but a U.K. judge has given them one small victory on Monday -- even if it comes at the expense of being humiliated about how uncool their product is.
If you’re an iPhone 4 owner who was unhappy with Apple’s offer of a free bumper to resolve your “Antennagate” related woes, you’ll now be able to cash in on that despair thanks to a class action settlement -- but don’t fill your eyes with dollar signs just yet.
While it may not be on par with the defendant who won that big lawsuit with McDonald’s over their coffee being too hot, Apple is again faced with legal action, this time from an 83-year-old woman who walked into the glass door at a Long Island retail location.
In a matter of weeks, Proview has gone from a company few have ever heard of to positioning themselves as a underdog in their iPad trademark battle against Apple Inc. Can this techno David take on Goliath and come out unscathed with their most valuable asset still intact?
