But recent court cases are threatening to make the situation even more difficult by demanding that a country’s laws be honored by companies like Google all around the world. On Wednesday, an ongoing…
Facebook was back in federal court today to plead with a judge to reject ZeniMax’s request to halt sales of the Oculus Rift headset. The argument by Facebook’s lawyers could work, but it sure doesn’t make the company’s defense against the original suit look any stronger.
As well as promising the entire world in a FedEx box, Amazon also trades on the quality of its reviews. So it’s actually not surprising that the company is taking 1,114 unknown reviewers to court.
Ross Ulbricht, the California hippie convicted for founding notorious online drug market Silk Road, has been sentenced to life in prison.
Lawyers for a woman trying to win a personal injury claim are going to use her Fitbit data in court to try to prove that she has not been active. This is incredibly stupid.
Remember the woman who got a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving? Well, her citation's been dismissed by a San Diego court commissioner, who said he found no proof the device was operating at the time.
Word is trickling in through the wire that Apple just scored another court victory over Samsung. What does that mean? For now it looks like the United States International Trade Commission has ordered Samsung to stop selling and distributing devices that infringe on two Apple patents.
Because Florida was hastily attached to America to be the butt of her jokes, this latest piece of ridiculousness should come as no surprise: Florida might have accidentally banned all computers and smart phones. How? It all stems from a poorly worded bill that banned Internet cafes and slot machines.
In a court room in Virginia, Facebook's lawyers are busy arguing that the social network's "Like" feature needs to be recognised with free-speech protection under the US Constitution.

A German trial, which is seeing Google and Motorola battle Microsoft, appears to be going badly for the search giant. So badly, in fact, that a German judge has stated that he's "inclined" to ban Google Maps in the country.
Dutch programmer Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer is suing Facebook over its 'Like' button. Companies get sued all the time! Why do we care? Well, aside from having an A+ name, van Der Meer is actually... dead. He passed away in 2004, just as Facebook was beginning to take over the world. Why is he suing now?
Because the court system is an inescapable never ending maze of appeals and paperwork, a ruling doesn't seem to mark the end of anything. Even when the court said Samsung had to pay a billion dollars to Apple back in August, it can rule something differently tomorrow. Or at least, tweak and overturn something.…
Though Apple won a fresh billion dollars in the US patent infringement case that saw Samsung basically lose everything, Apple won't be able to kill Samsung products dead. Judge Lucy Koh, the federal judge that presided over Apple v. Samsung, has denied Apple a permanent injunction against Samsung. Samsung can still…
iPhone owners can't sue Apple over broken glass, says judge. Which kind of imbeciles sue for breaking their own stuff?
After hearing trade secrets from both Apple and Samsung throughout the court hearings and waiting forever for the jury to make a decision, the verdict finally came in today.

Jin Soo Kim, a Samsung industrial designer, was called to the stand today by Samsung at Apple and Samsung's court battle and revealed this: the Galaxy Tab 10.1 project couldn't have ripped off the iPad because the Tab 10.1 project began in October 2009 (while the iPad was announced on January 27, 2010). Kim even went…
For two years, from June 2010 through June 2012, Samsung sold 21.25 million phones. Its most popular model during that span? Not a Galaxy S II phone, not a Nexus phone but the not exactly vaunted... Samsung Galaxy Prevail on Boost Mobile.
