SC Ruling Signals New Era for Software Patent Enforcement


The U.S. Supreme Court once again has changed the landscape for software infringement litigation. In a decision released last week, the court severely undercut the ability of plaintiffs to seek out courts that have a track record of being “friendly” to the plaintiff’s position — a practice called “forum shopping.” The Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling compels plaintiffs seeking software infringement remedies to submit their cases only in district courts located where the defendant either resides or conducts a significant amount of business.

Apple has changed the date for the launch event for its 4-inch iPhone and new iPad Air from March 15 to March 21, according to news reports.

Don't click 'like' on Facebook again until you read this

Facebook has changed the way people do a lot of things online. For example, you probably notice yourself reflexively clicking “like” on anything your friends post on Facebook, even if it’s just to acknowledge you saw it. Scammers are taking advantage of that reflex for a dangerous scam called “like-farming.”

There's a Science to Engaging With Empowered Consumers

Denis Pombriant is assuming your answer to the first question is a resounding “No!” and in Solve for the Customer, he provides solid, realistic advice to help you answer the second question.

EA revolutionizes gaming with Netflix-style subscription service – but only on Xbox One

EA Access on the Xbox One, showing The Vault game subscription service
EA, in one fell swoop, has changed the entire landscape of gaming and made it much more feasible to buy an Xbox One instead of a PS4. Starting today, beta testers will be able to subscribe to EA Access ($5 per month or $30 annually), giving them unlimited access to some of EA’s biggest games Considering these top-tier games usually cost $70 each, gaining access to all (or most) of EA’s games for just $30 per year is an incredibly good deal — so good that, if you’re into EA games, the Xbox One actually starts to make a lot more sense than the PS4. This is crazy, crazy stuff from EA — really, what is the company thinking?
