HTC One suffers another setback with lawsuit from Nokia

It looks like the folks from HTC just can't catch a break, even with their new flagship smartphone.

Nokia befriends Apple in fight against Samsung

In the ongoing feud between Samsung and Apple, it looks like one of these companies has found a new friend. That company is Apple and the friend is Nokia. It seems Nokia has recently filed a brief in support of Apple and as a result has become the only outside group to come forward in support of the appeal. The interesting part here is that Apple had sued Nokia back in 2009. The companies later settled in 2011 and as a result, Apple had to pay Nokia royalties.

Apple vs Samsung: Judge cuts 450 million from damages, new trial set

The Apple vs Samsung trial has been in the news again this week a few times. Last year Apple won one of the biggest lawsuits in their ongoing Android battle and a Judge awarded them over $1 billion in damages from Samsung for patent infringement. While that numbers slowly been dropped, today Judge Koh removed 450 million from that, and ordered a new damages trial with a fresh new Jury.

FCC chairman talks cell phone unlocking and current ban

As of late January it became illegal to unlock your phone. This came as a result of some changes to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) that were actually put in place back in October 2012.

Samsung’s infringement of Apple patents declared not willful

In its high-profile patent case against Apple, Samsung has taken quite a few hits. This week, however, Samsung is catching a rather large break, as Judge Lucy Koh has decided to accept the company's claims that it wasn't infringing willfully. This means the amount Samsung has been ordered to pay Apple probably won't increase much moving forward, which is likely something making Samsung's attorneys exhale a sigh of a relief today.

PSA: Unlocking your phone is illegal starting today

In case you haven't heard, starting today it will be illegal for users to unlock their phone. Yes a device you've actually paid for. While this has absolutely nothing to do with root, jailbreak, and tweaking phones like we all love to in the Android Community, it's still a shame. Thanks to some edits and tweaks made the the DMCA back in October it's now illegal to unlock a phone without carrier consent.

Cook, Schmidt, and Otellini forced to testify on employee poaching agreement

Fridays are normally slow news days, but not this one. Today we're hearing a whopper of a story coming out of All Things D, as Judge Lucy Koh (the very same Judge that oversaw the case between Apple and Samsung) is ordering Apple CEO Tim Cook, Intel CEO Paul Otellini, and Google Chairman Eric Schmidt to give testimonies related to the companies' non-poaching agreement. Allegedly, Apple, Intel, and Google all entered into an agreement that restricted each company from recruiting the others' employees.
