Its all fun and games until the lawyers arrive. The way it works today, if you say ridiculous things on a news interview, there is a good chance someone is going to put it online. If it is popular online, there is a good chance someone is going to make a funny song about it. And, if the song is popular, there is good chance someone is going to start selling it. Now, at what point do you get back involved in the process you started? Right there at the last part -- when someone starts selling it, and is not paying you for saying ridiculous things in the first place. And, since you are suing people anyway, why not include Apple, too? Welcome to the way things work today.
Tomorrow our favorite courtroom characters return to the big stage for a holiday extravaganza, as Samsung and Apple are set to perform in front of Judge Koh once again. This time both companies are scrambling to get as many gifts as possible from their first courtroom battle, the one that ended this summer with Samsung owing Apple $1 billion. Samsung is asking for a jury misconduct ruling, while Apple is wishing for a whole list of devices to be banned, and Judge Koh is going to unwrap the secret deal Cupertino made with HTC last month. Are we finally going to find out who's been naughty and nice?
