Professor Paul Janicke of the University of Houston Law School conducted a study of all damage verdicts in patent infringement cases between 2005 and 2007. He found no pattern of “runaway jury awards.” In fact, many of the biggest damage awards of that time, including the $1.5 billion award Lucent won from Microsoft, were set aside or greatly reduced by the judges. Even Apple’s $1 billion 2012 patent verdict against Samsung was recently slashed 43 percent. Why, then, are claims of… [read post]

by Julian Ku According to Reuters, the U.S. is thinking hard about denying a visa to Iran’s new U.N. Ambassador, thus preventing him from taking up his post in New York. The new ambassador, Hamid Abutalebi, apparently participated in the Iranian takeover of the U.S. embassy in Tehran back in 1979. Although nothing is official yet, it looks like the U.S. is going to invoke its “security exception” to the U.N. Headquarters Agreement to deny Abutalebi a visa.   As in the… [read post]

We all take the Internet for granted.  Short of a power outage taking down phone lines, cell towers and satellite transmissions, the Internet will always there. Like death and taxes, you can count on it. Not that the paradigm will change any time soon, but at some point, it might. On March 14 and 17, 2014, the Wall Street Journal reported on the decision by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (“NTIA”), part of the Commerce Department, to cede control of… [read post]

The goal is to gain a moral advantage… [read post]
