Today, Sue the T. Rex fossil, the largest and best preserved T. Rex fossil ever discovered, turns 25—or at the very least, 65,500,025 (but she doesn’t look a day over 60.5 million if you ask me.)
The most exciting, confounding movie of this year chronicles a niche news story from two decades ago. Dinosaur 13 is a documentary that delves into the legal, scientific, cultural, and personal dramas that developed when a fossilized, almost fully intact, 65-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton was found by a…
Another day, another patent lawsuit. Today's below-bridge dwelling plantiff is Taiwanese company VIA.
Apple has won an agreement that prohibits Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab in Australia. Samsung has stopped advertising the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and won't sell the device in Australia...for now at least.
Yet another lawsuit—this time between Viacom and Cablevision—was started today. Reuters reports that the alleged culprit, Cablevision, is being accused of "unauthorized streaming of [Viacom's] programming on devices such as Apple Inc's iPad."
When Lodsys started targeting iOS developers, it probably wasn't looking for the kinds of fights it's been running into. A few days after Apple came to the aid of its devs, word comes that the New York Times and OpinionLabs are counter-troll-suing as well.
Apple has just sued Samsung for "copying" Apple's intellectual property in their devices. According to the WSJ, Apple named the Nexus S, Epic 4G, Galaxy S 4G and the Galaxy Tab tablet as evidence of Samsung stealing from Apple's iPhone and iPad. The lawsuit says:
Earlier this month, Motorola sued Apple for pretty much everything phone-related: MobileMe, the App Store, location based services, antenna design, and so forth. One thing Moto didn't mention however, was multitouch. So guess what happened? Apple decided to sue Motorola right back, filing two patent infringement…
That's the problem with making really nice visual representations of the almost comically litigious mobile industry; you're never more than a few hours away from another sweeping accusation of patent infringements. This time it's Motorola's turn, with three complaints against Apple that cover a whopping 18 patents.
Microsoft announced today that they're going after Motorola for patent infringement. Specifically, nine patents that Microsoft says Motorola's Android smartphones infringe on. Given that Microsoft's already gotten HTC to roll over based on similar claims, this could get very interesting.
Following last week's news of a possible legal confrontation with George Lucas, Jedi Mind Inc. has decided its worth spending $9.99 on a new domain name rather than risk a $5m legal claim—it's now called Mind Technologies "in order to avoid potential infringement of trademarks owned by Lucasfilm Ltd". And the Jedi…
One journalist is attempting to take on Nokia Siemens Networks, after being jailed for a year due to an inflammatory article he wrote. What's Nokia Siemens got to do with it? They provided the spying equipment used to find him.
It's easy to laugh at George Lucas for suing people left right and center, but when his latest target is a company calling itself "Jedi Mind Inc." you can't help side with the bearded movie maker. They're asking for it.
As expected, the quiet brouhaha over Google accidentally collecting personal Wi-Fi network details when cruising in the Street View cars has turned into a lawsuit, with two Oregon citizens suing them for potentially millions.
Imagine being so angry at your $59 iPod Shuffle conking out, that you'd file a lawsuit against Apple. He must have a serious lack of shame too, as his reason for the Shuffle breaking? It wasn't immune to his sweat.
News just in—X tech company sues Y tech company! Except it's not that simple. Dell's actually filed a lawsuit against five manufacturers—Sharp, Hitachi, Toshiba, Seiko Epson and HannStar, for supposed price-fixing of LCD monitors.
Whoa, Apple just sued HTC for infringing on 20 patents "related to the iPhone's user interface, underlying architecture and hardware." UPDATE: The patents Apple's claiming are incredible. We've got both full filings below. And HTC's comment. They're surprised too!
Dave Zatz brings to our attention details from the TiVo earnings call. First, they lost more subscribers. Secondly, they're suing Verizon and AT&T for DVR patent violation. Doesn't seem like a good business strategy, but what do I know? I still like TiVo. I just hate most of what's on TV. [DaveZatz]
New Yorker Avi Koschitzki has tossed his own lawsuit in with the rising pile, accusing Apple and AT&T of the usual crimes (lousy 3G reception and speed, lackluster software updates) as well as a newbie: hairline cracks in the iPhone 3G's casing. We've reported on it before, but this is the first time it's showing up…
Microsoft is suing delivery service DHL for their refusal to compensate the boys in Redmond for the destruction of over 21,000 Xboxes in a Texas train derailment. The consoles were due for Hong Kong when the train, carrying two large containers of Xboxes, went off the tracks, sustaining a substantial amount of water…
