INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

November 26, 2018

Imagine living in a home surrounded by devices ready to track every little move you make. I’m talking about every little detail that is physically noticeable to the human eye - ranging from the print on your t-shirt, to what you had for dinner on the weekend. Believe you me, this is not a CIA operation we’re talking about, but an actual patent by Google that describes a home automation system, that will suggest or automatically implement household policies on sensed observations. Think of it li...

An Apple event usually takes the cherry when it comes to showcasing what’s new in their line of products. The Cuppertino based company arrived with a bang at the launch of their new iPad pro and MacBook air devices, held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Although the iPhone remains to be their headline product, Apple put in a noticeable effort to bolster the sale of its other flagships. The show was more loved than what they had set up during the launch of the new iPhones and Apple watches back...

The recent update on the Apple-Qualcomm legal dispute comes with Qualcomm’s appeal for the import ban of some iPhones getting denied.  Apple primarily is facing this lawsuit against those iPhones that contain chips made by Intel corp, which Qualcomm believes, infringes on its patents.

What makes this decision so interesting is that even though it was declared that Apple did in fact infringe on one of three patents discussed in the case, Judge Pender took the high road here and decided to favour...

A lone ranger has found a massive loophole in what was called the hottest legal battle of the past decade.  Earlier this year, Uber received a massive setback, after they were obliged to fork out a hefty $245 million, in order to settle their year long legal battle with Alphabet’s subsidiary Waymo. The tussle began in February 2017, when Waymo sued Uber on grounds of using its trade secrets, related to LiDAR technology, which is implemented in most of the self driving cars we see today....

It’s quite aggravating, having to run across the room to address a ringing phone, just to find out that it was actually a spam call. 4.5 billion spam calls were made in June 2018, which is nearly 18 spam calls per person. It’s not hard to figure out why spam calls may have ranked top in the number of complaints filed to the Federal Trade Commission in 2017. A grand total of 7,157,370 complaints were made against robocalls and telemarketers. Looking at these numbers it’s evident that the users a...

In retrospect of the innumerous lawsuits Facebook has been combating since the past decade, it seems that they should buckle up even further, for the ride’s about to get bumpier. Facebook, along with its subsidiary Instagram, and two other social media companies namely Snap inc. and Foursquares Lab inc. will be facing a lawsuit on grounds of patent infringement.

The plaintiff Corrino Holdings LLC, is a non practicing entity with connections to IP Valuation Partners. After forming the company in...

Virtual Reality has come a long way -  From merely being a technology for the future, to actually  experiencing it at your disposal.

Until recent years, the concept was said to be way out of reach for the kind of graphical capabilities required for it. Of course, there were high end computers optimized for it, but they were very costly, so everyone couldn’t get their hands on it. But with the popularization of VR headsets, the dream of living in virtual reality didn’t seem so far fetched. O...

The key to run a successful business, if you ask the big players, they’ll tell you, resides in how nice and friendly of a work environment you’re able to create for the employees.  Well, most of them. Amazon is one company that differs from this methodology completely. The no-retreat no-surrender work culture that it instills in its employees have had the company wrapped up in controversies for the good part of their existence. Bob Olson, a former Amazon Books Marketing employee, said that "nea...

Tesla’s long run with Panasonic’s 18650 cells came to a halt recently with the launch of their new model 3, that packed the next generation 2170 cells (21mm width, 70mm height). According to experts, this new battery pack was no less than an engineering marvel, that contained 30 – 33% more energy when compared with previous generation 18650 cells.

In general, the company has always had contrasting ideas to the other big players in the industry, concerning the batteries used in their cars. Most c...
