Court ruling prevents SEP owners from seeking ITC exclusion order
0. phoneArena 23 May 2013, 13:48 posted on
In what is being described as a landmark court decision, a California court recently ruled that owners of standards-essential patents cannot enforce a sales ban from the ITC; the case involved was Realtek v. LSI/Agere, but there are similarities to the usual patent battles between Samsung and Apple that are up in front of the ITC. At least, Apple thinks so...

1) no free copy file = fascism
2) no default app selection = fascism
3) no nfc = arrogance
4) no voice recognition in many languages = incapability
5) Apple censors your personal emails!!!! - “Apple censoring iCloud emails and attachments” = fascism
6) "Phones most vulnerable among smartphones" = amateurs
7) "Apple iOS Apps Leak More Personal Info Than Android" = security amateurs
8) "Quarter of iPhones have a broken screen, poll says." = quality sucks
9) "40% of iOS popular apps invade your privacy without any permission." = security sucks
10) "FBI files: STEVE JOBS was a lying, power hungry, mad man."
11) "Steve Jobs: "We are shameless about stealing great ideas." "
12) "Italy fines Apple $1.2 million over AppleCare practices." = fascism

wow so much hate I dont understand, does any of this companies that sell phones gives you anything for you to be defending them so much? they only care for the money as long as they can keep people paying they will be happy, just pick the OS that you like and be happy with it, and yes I owned almost every high end device in the US and is all up to choice, pick what you like.

"Your*; R.I.P English. However, my point is that it sucks to be you considering you're such a useless fan-boy of an inferior OS."
Nice try, but try harder next time.

I can not say for sure that Samsung did not abuse their FRAND license, I don't know. But I can tell you that Apple has abused the patent system since 2007. I can just imagine the sad state the mobile industry would be in if Apple would have got there way and suppress all competition through there overblown and far reaching patents.

I said "worst", not "worse". If you're going to constantly troll could you at least learn to read? Thanks.

how is FRAND patents different from other patents? just that selfish apple don't play well with others by agreeing to put patent into industry standard there by hindering interoperability.
FRAND patents are patent and apple had not pay for even a single ones. they are exploring on ways to avoid payment.
Industrial standard such as bluetooth, MPEG 4 will be a things of the past which is exactly what apple is gunning for.

FOSSpatents being dumbo's again. The court ruled that *no negotiations* before an ITC ban is wrong.
Apple already didn't want to accept FRAND rates from Moto.

We do not take sides, but I felt compelled to answer your post. Motorola's demands for its SEPs were extremely high, if you recall, so you can't really compare (gulp!) Apples to Oranges.

2% of the price of the product is not that high, compare to 8% or more Microsoft and Apple is asking.
And I am just wondering why still make Florian Mueler as your source. It was revealed in Oracle VS Google case that he is paid by Oracle to badmouth Google (and by what he is doing now, opensource too). There are other sources like Groklaw or Patently-O.

HTC could be shilling out between $6 and $8 to Apple per phone the company sells as part of the companies’ recent licensing settlement, according to Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu.
The pricey licensing fee would net Apple something in the realm of $180 million and $280 million in 2013, based on expectations that HTC will sell between 30 million and 35 million smartphones next year.
In a note to investors, Wu said that this $8 fee was lower than what Apple initially proposed but greater than the $5 HTC pays Microsoft for each Android phone.

I'm referring to the court case where Apple pretty much said, "We don't have to accept the rates set by a judge!"
That was in WI IIRC, and it was one Apple started themselves!

Alan never heard the saying, "It's better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt."

What needs to be done to stop apple would be to nullify the frand agreement since it does nothing except give Apple a place to hide. Or force all the lame Apple patents, which are honestly even more ridiculous than frand patents into a similar union like structure like frand.
It's only about time that someone steps in and stops Apple and MS from abusing like how frand stopped Nokia and Ericsson from abusing their power.
