End of the beginning

JMO/IANAL:

IMO this is merely the end of the beginning.  I have read that large patent suits are almost always appealed and to some extent (IANAL) the purpose of the first trial is to establish grounds for appeal rather than to produce a meaningful result.  I think this a reason Judge Koh has imposed such strict time limits.

All this will end when Apple and/or Samsung runs out of money.  Meanwhile, Apple has done a great job of making itself known as a Patent Aggressor instead of a creator of Cool Products and has brought Samsung products into the public eye better than any Samsung marketing campaign could have done.

as the famous saying that 'bad-publicity is still a publicity' so Samsung has for sure benefitted from the ongoing brawl. As for Apple, it is a fight to appease their ego.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
