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.

SCOTUS Scuttles Apple's Big Samsung Award


The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday spoiled Apple’s hopes for a big payday, scotching the $399 million award in its successful patent infringement suit against Samsung. Justice Sonia Sotomayor delivered the Court’s decision, which turned on what lawmakers meant by the term “article of manufacture.” According to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, the article of manufacture in this case included the entire phone — even though the design elements cribbed from Apple represented only a part of a phone sold by Samsung. The Supremes disagreed.

Russia May Kick Out LinkedIn


A LinkedIn block in Russia could be imminent, in light of last week’s court ruling that the company broke a law requiring personal data on Russian citizens to be stored on servers within the country. Roskomnadzor, Russia’s telecommunications and media authority, is waiting until it has the full text of the ruling before acting on it. “We remain interested in a meeting with Roskomnadzor to discuss their data localization request,” said LinkedIn spokesperson May Chow. Russia had 5 million registered LinkedIn members in Q1.

Microsoft Wins Legal Victory in Fight Over Email Stored Abroad


Microsoft on Thursday won its nearly four-year battle against a New York district court judge’s warrant requiring it to turn over customer emails held on a server in Ireland.
Microsoft had complied with demands to turn over account information stored on its servers in the United States, but it had refused to give up the emails themselves, contending a U.S. judge did not have the authority to issue warrants for information stored abroad. Microsoft two years ago lost its bid to vacate the warrant, and it subsequently lost an appeal.

FCC Wins Huge Net Neutrality Victory Over Big Telecom


An appellate court on Tuesday handed a major victory to the Federal Communications Commission by upholding the agency’s watershed Open Internet Order, which ensures equal access to the Internet. By a 2-1 vote, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the FCC’s right to impose Net neutrality rules that essentially prevent big telecom and broadband companies from slowing down, speeding up, or blocking service based on content providers’ market power or willingness to pay.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear Google’s appeal of a lower court ruling in a suit alleging the company used deceptive practices in the sale and placement of advertising through its AdWords program between 2004 and 2008. Google, a unit of Alphabet, sought to overturn the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals September 2015 ruling that the lawsuit could go forward as a class action case.

Supreme Court Grants Federal Agents Broader Surveillance Authority


The U.S. Supreme Court last week approved a series of amendments to the federal rules of criminal procedure that would let judges issue search warrants for computers located outside their jurisdiction. Chief Justice John Roberts announced the changes in the Court’s interpretation of the rules. They would allow a judge to issue warrants to search remote sites where the exact location of a suspect was not known, but where the suspect might be hiding evidence electronically, for example.
