Aggresión de Patentes vistas en las noticias en lo que va de la semana

ImmersionSumario: La carrera de ratas y patentes de software que estan siendo astutamente disfrazadas como si pertenecieran al hardware en orden de engañar a los examinadores y habilitar de facto el trolling de patentes

DÍAS atrás mencionamos las patentes de Immersion (la traducción al Español fue publicada esta mañana) por que la OEP ha estado otorgando patentes a ellos (como iniciar vibraciones y cuando).

Coincidentalmente, el siguiente reportaje (de la Prensa Tecnológica Británica) ha sido traída a nuestra atención. Dice:

Traje Haptic Immersion, de quien se rumoreó haber estado en charlas con Apple, ha soltado una avalancha de juicios contra Cupertino, AT&T, y AT&T Mobility sobre presuntas infracciónes de patentes.

Las bolas de jucios de Immersion han aterrizado en la Comisión de Comercio Internacional (ITC) de los Estados Unidos y en la Corte del Distrito de Delaware.

Las charlas en el 2008 entre Apple e Immersion nunca consiguieron nada, pero más tarde ese año, la última compañía estableció un arreglo en su jucio de seis años contra Microsoft acerca de su tecnología ¨rumble¨ y se convirtió en un Socio Certificado de Microsoft.

¿Quién es el siguiente? ¿Distribuidores de Android? Ya vimos a Microsoft y Noka haciendo eso antes.

“A Microsoft también le gusta patentar software en la OEP (Microsoft es un VIP en la OEP).”Immersion es una compañía ´licenciadora´ a quien la OEP alimenta mucho con patentes de software. No sabíamos que era un Socio Certificado de Microsoft. A Microsoft también le gusta patentar software en la OEP (Microsoft es un VIP en la OEP). Nos preguntamos ¿qué hace la OEP aquí? No importa la ITC.

En otras noticias acerca de patentes, Microsoft esta ahora patentando mejoras de sistemas. Como la British Tecnology Press lo puso: ¨El resultado de todo esto es, básicamente, un estilo de Lego armelo usted ordenador, tomando los existentes conceptos de ordenadores que pueden ser mejorados por el usuario pero acabando con la necesidad de abrir algo.

¨Tal jugada no es nueva, por decir menos. Intel ha trabajado en algo similar en linea con su Siguiente Unidad de Computación (NUC) mini PC rango por varios años. La NUC no es apilable con simples unidades cerradas como el concepto de Microsoft, pero se caracteriza por sus pequeños componentes estilo laptop que simplemente se unen al tablero principal con minimo uso de destornilladores or habilidades transferidas.¨

“Si yo hubiera desarrollado un software como Vista 10 (como un desarrollador independiente), los medios de comunicación lo llamarían malware y correría el riesgo de ser arrestado. No Microsoft…”¿A quién está concesionando estas patentes de todos modos? Háptica en mente, también vean este reportaje titulado “¿Por qué Microsoft compró SwiftKey? Pista: No se trata de los teclados“(SE TRATA DE PATENTES Y ESPIONAJE). Microsoft quiere espiar cada vez más en el uso de teclados ‘en tiempo real, no sólo en Vista 10, que es efectivamente un keylogger hábilmente enmascarado como un sistema operativo que las personas no pueden evitar (en silencio se va a instalar, al igual que el malware). Si hubiera desarrollado un software como Vista 10 (como un desarrollador independiente), los medios de comunicación lo llamarían malware correría el riesgo de ser arrestado. No Microsoft …

Bueno, Microsoft es ‘especial’…muy conectada con el gobierno y la NSA.

  19. The European Patent Office Will Never Hold Its Destroyers Accountable

    With only one in seven EPO stakeholders believing that Battistelli's pick (António Campinos) will turn things around for the better, it certainly does not seem like people are happy and there's no real hope that Battistelli will ever be held accountable for his abuses after his immunity expires

  20. With Liars Like These...
