Rethinking the Customer Journey Map


If you talk to marketers for any amount of time about what they do, you are bound to hear the term “customer journey” at some point. The go-to exercise for marketers looking to up their lead generation games today is “journey mapping,” the exercise by which you try to understand how a potential buyer navigates through content on the way to a closed deal.

SCOTUS Turns Its Back on Google Books Challenge


The United States Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear a petition to review a lower court decision allowing Google to scan and publish excerpts of copyright-protected books without asking for permission from the authors or paying them. The petition, filed at the end of last year, was the latest move in the Guild’s decade-long war with Google, which has maintained that its searchable digital books database is fair use and for the public benefit. The Supreme Court’s decision will harm authors, according to the Guild.

Supreme Court to End Samsung, Apple Patent Brawl


The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from Samsung regarding its patent dispute with Apple. The case stems from a 2011 lawsuit by Apple that alleged Samsung copied certain design elements and features from the iPhone and iPad and used them in Samsung Galaxy phones and tablet computers. A jury in 2012 awarded $1 billion to Apple, finding that Samsung had used some of Apple’s tap-to-zoom technology. The award was later reduced. The companies reached a partial agreement in December.
