"Fundamental fairness requires that the jury decide the case based on all the evidence."
FORTUNE -- Two funny things about the e-mail to the press of excluded evidence that got John Quinn, Samsung's lead lawyer, in such hot water with the judge -- and prompted Apple (AAPL) Wednesday to file for sanctions:
1) Although Quinn, who had literally begged judge Lucy Koh to let him show the jury the evidence, wrote in a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 2, 2012 6:58 AM ET
Judge for yourself: Does this look like something Jony Ive might have copied?
FORTUNE -- The biggest drama on the first full day of Apple v. Samsung -- the high-stakes patent infringement case being played out in a packed San Jose federal courthouse -- was the release to the press of information Samsung's lead attorney had literally begged the judge to allow into evidence. ("What's the point of having a trial?" MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 1, 2012 7:59 AM ET
The end of the beginning of Apple's proxy war against Google
FORTUNE -- The most important confrontation in the "thermonuclear war" Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs launched against Google's (GOOG) Android operating system two years ago is scheduled to begin in earnest Monday when two armies of opposing lawyers meet in a federal courthouse in San Jose, Calif.
Their first order of business: To pick the 10-member jury that will decide the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 30, 2012 8:02 AM ET
And by the way, you owe us $2.5 billion in sales, damages and lost profits for ours
FORTUNE -- On Monday, Reuters reported that Apple (AAPL) and Samsung were far apart in their second round of court-ordered settlement talks, but we had no idea how far apart.
According to FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller, who has reviewed documents filed Tuesday morning, Apple is demanding
$500 million in lost profits
$25 million in royalty damages
$2 billion MORE
Remember Apple's QuickTake cameras? Kodak does.
FORTUNE -- In the early 1990s, long after Steve Jobs left the company, Apple (AAPL) approached Kodak (EKDKQ) executives and asked them to build a camera for the Mac.
The result -- the QuickTake 100, released in 1994 -- was one of the first digital cameras designed for consumers. It was hailed by Time Magazine as one of the 100 greatest and most influential inventions since MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 22, 2012 6:44 AM ET
Not just patent trolls, but companies with a combined worth of over $1 trillion have filed IP suits
FORTUNE -- FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller used the discovery Friday that Fujifilm has filed a patent infringement suit against Google (GOOG) subsidiary Motorola Mobility to ask why it is that Android attracts so many intellectual property lawsuits.
He's not talking about patent trolls. They sue everybody, including Apple (AAPL).
He's talking about publicly traded companies MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 15, 2012 7:03 PM ET
Apple is granted two preliminary injunctions in one week; opponents are apoplectic
FORTUNE -- Google (GOOG) made no public comment Friday after Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple (AAPL) a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- a touchscreen cellphone whose hardware and software were jointly developed by Google and Samsung engineers.
It was the second ban on an Android-based Samsung device in a week (see here), and the first to strike directly MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 30, 2012 6:53 AM ET
In a ruling sure to be widely cited, an influential jurist put his finger on the problem with Steve Jobs' threat to go "thermonuclear" on Google's Android
FORTUNE -- Toward the end of his long analysis of Judge Richard Posner's ruling Friday that dismissed -- once and for all, with prejudice -- Apple's (AAPL) claim that Motorola's Android phones "ripped off" the iPhone, FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller got to the heart MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 23, 2012 8:19 AM ET
The judge left open the possibility that he might change his mind, and that's what he did
FORTUNE -- When last we visited Judge Richard Posner's court in the Northern District of Illinois he had issued an order dismissing "with prejudice" the Apple v. Motorola patent infringement case -- an order that was widely reported as the end of the line for both parties.
But the order was tentative, and it came MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 14, 2012 4:17 PM ET
Having whittled the case down to the nub, Richard Posner tossed out the rest
FORTUNE -- First he characterized a Motorola claim as "ridiculous." Then he called one of Apple's (AAPL) "frivolous" and "untimely," warning Cupertino's lawyers that he'd had his fill of such things. Later he told both sides to rewrite their briefs in language a layperson could understand, and forbade Apple from trying to turn the case into a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 7, 2012 4:16 PM ET
