Amazon, Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla And Others Partner To Create Next-Gen Video Format | TechCrunch
As Mozilla notes, part of the reason for forming this alliance is not just to share technology, but also to “run the kind of patent analysis necessary to build a next-generation royalty-free video codec.” There is no dearth of royalty-free next-gen codec projects, of course. Mozilla has Daala, Cisco has Thor, and Google is working on VP9 and 10. It’s no surprise then that the Alliance’s first project is to create a new video codec specification that’s based on the previous work of its members. This work is part of the larger effort of creating a format that’s open and interoperable, as well as optimized for the web and scalable to any device and bandwidth. The group plans to publish its code under the Apache 2.0 license and it will operate under W3C patent rules, meaning the members will waive royalties from the codec implementations and their patents on the codec itself.

All Android operating systems infringe Java API packages, Oracle says | Ars Technica UK
The ongoing legal saga known as the Oracle-Google copyright battle took a huge leap Wednesday when Oracle claimed the last six Android operating systems are "infringing Oracle's copyrights in the Java platform." That's according to the latest paperwork Oracle filed in the five-year-old closely watched case that so far has resulted in the determination that Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are, indeed, copyrightable. [...] The latest legal brouhaha comes two months after the Supreme Court declined to review Google's contentions that assigning copyright to APIs, sets a dangerous precedent and allows "copyright monopolies over the basic building blocks of computer design and programming." [...] [&] fair use right [came up][.] Complicating matters more, however, is the fact that there's no clear answer as to what constitutes fair use. [...] [I]t's decided on a case-by-case basis. According to the US Copyright Office.

Addressing Concerns Over Apple’s iPhone Growth | Re/code
Analysis: Android manufacturers (mostly Asia based) can't compete eye to eye with iPhone quality because they don't have the money for R&D and talent in design/UI/UX. &! Just to make the R&D/talent aspect for the hard things that are hard: hardware. Apple Patents New Liquidmetal Techniques For Manufacturing ( tcrn.ch/1TjN6uS ) vs. Xiaomi buying patents for "Patent War Chest to Launch in U.S." ( bloom.bg/1CG3s9S ) And even Microsoft and Apple make money off Android device sales because of patents (patents for technology, inside Android devices, that Microsoft or Apple own). // Apple's aspirational product - status anxiety - vs - Free. Downside with Free Of Android being a Privacy Sinkhole. & underfunded Android HW manufacturers vs only, marginally LG, Samsung, Lenovo who have other businesses.

BBC News - Google's Vint Cerf warns of 'digital Dark Age'
Our life, our memories, our most cherished family photographs increasingly exist as bits of information - on our hard drives or in "the cloud". But as technology moves on, they risk being lost in the wake of an accelerating digital revolution. "I worry a great deal about that," Mr Cerf told me. "You and I are experiencing things like this. Old formats of documents that we've created or presentations may not be readable by the latest version of the software because backwards compatibility is not always guaranteed. "And so what can happen over time is that even if we accumulate vast archives of digital content, we may not actually know what it is."

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Adam Carolla’s Settlement with the Podcasting Troll | Electronic Frontier Foundation
The settlement is interesting because, until now, Carolla had refused to settle, arguing that it was important to fight back against patent trolls on a point of principle. His “Save Our Podcasts” legal defense fund has so far raised close to half a million dollars. Why he would settle now after promising to fight is unclear, and will remain unclear for at least 40 days. That’s the quiet period agreed by Personal Audio and Carolla before either is allowed to discuss the settlement. - http://pando.com/2014/08/20/adam-carolla-agrees-settlement-with-podcasting-patent-troll/ --- btw Carolla came under fire by GLAAD in 2011, after going on a shocking anti-LGBT tirade on a podcast for his radio show, asking, "When did we start giving a sh*t about these [transgender] people?" He also reportedly insisted the acronym LGBT should be dropped in favor of using "YUCK" instead.

Why Elon Musk Just Opened Up All of Tesla's Patents : The New Yorker
It’s a risky move but a shrewd one. It’s one that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for a lot of companies. But it does for Tesla. The company’s stock has doubled in the past year, but the industry is struggling. Musk’s biggest electic-car-entrepreneur-frenemy, Shai Agassi, led his company, Better Place, into bankruptcy a year ago. It’s a good moment for the industry to get a jolt. “Putting in long hours for a corporation is hard,” Musk said on Thursday during a conference call. “Putting in long hours for a cause is easy.” What exactly is that cause? It’s bringing clean cars to the people, of course. But it’s also, it seems now, showing the world a new way to think about innovation. || +++ http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/17/teslas-elon-musk-on-making-electric-car-patents-public-were-really-all-in-the-same-ship/ >> // Industrial Policy - 1% and increasing incrementally on gas guzzling cars. + emissions tax on consumer driving a gas guzzeler.

Tesla Opens Up Patents to Promote Electric Vehicles | Re/code
Elon Musk's legacy will not just be Tesla Motors and SpaceX. It will also be this, being concerned about the future, that the velocity of which the electric car spreads to the consumer around the world isn't steep enough in order to make a dent in the world ... in the world's carbon emission reduction / global warming. He puts the common and public good before profits and WallStreet. Knowing and banking on the Tesla Brand and still having the first mover advantage in 5 years. Elon Musk picks his fights really well. Marrying a capitalistic profit motive of a company that was on the brink of failure and the public good/common good of reducing carbon footprint of the world. Establishing, enabling industry standards. Preventing technological incompatibilities and silos. Trying to prevent consumer frustration and friction. This is Win-Win. If Wall Street tanks the Stock this Friday, we should all give up ... on Wall Street already. // http://onforb.es/1mNg7Jw

RedShark News - Could VP9 be the codec for 4K Blu-Ray?
http://www.redsharknews.com/distribution/item/1373-vp9-codec-rides-to-the-aid-of-4k - Google have oddly found themselves in a great position to capitalise on the current 4K fervour with their VP9 codec. Google weren’t really thinking about 4K when they developed VP9, it just happened to be a fact of the way the codec was written that it supports up to 16K video! In fact when asked earlier last year if they would be supporting 4K the Google folks appeared somewhat confused by why anyone would want to do that, as obviously they had been designing VP9 with YouTube in mind and were more thinking that this would be a great way of making 720p YouTube streams really viable on normal internet connections.

Patent Bill Shows Wall Street Has Clout in Washington - NYTimes.com
The legislation was initially introduced by Senator Charles E. Schumer, a New York Democrat, with an even narrower view: to protect the interests of his big bank constituents in a dispute with DataTreasury Corporation of Plano, Tex., a company that owns dozens of patents for processing digital copies of checks.
Wall Street fought for the bill because it says it has been held hostage by holders of “business method” patents that should never have been granted by the patent office in the first place. Banks like JPMorgan Chase have been fighting DataTreasury over its patents for years.
The language in the bill is expansive. It covers patents for “a financial product or service” as well as “corresponding apparatus for performing data processing or other operations used in the practice, administration, or management of a financial product or service.”

A Small-Business Guide to Intellectual Property - NYTimes.com
The two most precious resources for any small-business owner are time and money. That’s why when the subject of intellectual property comes up, many owners run in the other direction. They see images of expensive lawyers and use that as an excuse to ignore the topic, reasoning that it is a problem for big companies to worry about.
