U.S. court denies Apple's request to block sales of Samsung Galaxy devices

“It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed,” U.S. judge wrote in a decision that came out last Friday, December 2, denying Apple’s appeal for a preliminary injunction against Samsung and from stopping it from selling Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

The two companies have been battling it out in court since April, when Apple Inc filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung for ‘slavishly’ copying and using a number of technologies off its iPad and iPhone.

That said, the pop singer claimed that she was screwed because “Rihanna’s quote here” than the amount she paid for it.

Kim Kardashian Sues Old Navy to Safeguard Sears Deal

Written on July 25, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Kim Kardashian files a lawsuit against Old Navy to protect her huge deal with Sears.

People close to the Kardashian clan informed TMZ what’s behind Kim Kardashian’s lawsuit against Old Navy. The answer? A huge deal with Sears.

According to sources, the TV personality feels that Old Navy is trying to mislead people that she is the company’s spokeswoman by using a girl who looked like her. Furthermore, Sears execs feel that Old Navy is trying to compromise the former’s Kardashian Kollection ad campaign. The Kardashian Kollection is an exclusive clothing and bedding line that will launch in about a month and a half.

Sears actually asked Kim Kardashian if she was part of the Old Navy’s ads, as it can create confusion in the market place. That said, the actress must prove her allegation to win her suit. But the main argument here is that Kim Kardashian doesn’t care about her wannabes. A deal that can be worth millions of dollars is what matters.

Comments Off

After George 'Geohot' Hotz survive the legal onslaught of Sony, he is now using his knowledge and skills for a good cause by working for Facebook.

After surviving the legal onslaught of Sony earlier this year, legendary hacker – George ‘Geohot’ Hotz – obtained a great job opportunity. He is working for the social networking site, Facebook.

Based on an interview with hacking community MyGreatFest, Geohot declined a challenge to hack an iPad 2 to remain focus on his new job. They say that George Hotz’s action indicated his involvement in the development of Facebook’s rumored iPad apps. It is also confirmed by TechMeme’s Gabe Rivera by tweeting a link to the hacker’s Facebook wall, which reportedly addressed Facebook as an amazing place to work.

George Hotz is not the first hacker to leave his hacking life and go to have a legal job. Now that more companies are recognizing the talents and skills required to become a hacker, Geohot will surely not be the last one to have this kind of situation.

Denise Underhill, who had an accident during a photo shoot inside the Playboy Mansion, filed a case against the renowned men's magazine.

A woman named Denise Underhill filed a lawsuit against Playboy because of a trampoline accident inside the Playboy Mansion back in 2009. The accident gave Denise Underhill a devastating knee injury during a bouncy photo shoot that requested her to jump on the trampoline.

According to the lawsuit that was filed in LA Superior Court last month, the victim stated that instead of giving her a proper medical assistance, she was just given crutches and sent on her way home. In the documents Denise Underhill presents, there were also no warning signs about the danger of using the equipment.

She also claims that her knee injury required surgery, demanding $25,000 and above from the men’s magazine. Meanwhile, Playboy still doesn’t have any statement about the issue.

Samsung Requests Apple to Provide Samples of Upcoming iPhone and iPad

Written on May 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter want to make sure that it won't happen again by requesting a sample of the big fruit's upcoming devices.

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter’s legal team requested the Cupertino-based company to hand over next-generation versions of the iPhone and iPad by June 17, 2011. This is done to make sure that Samsung’s own future devices will not be subjected to the same lawsuit that it’s currently facing. The motion, filed last Friday at San Jose, California, asks the court to make Apple provide samples of the ‘final commercial version(s)’ of the iPhone and iPad — along with its retail packaging.

But a week before the request was filed, Apple petitioned to see the final production samples of the unreleased number of Samsung products – including Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, Galaxy S II, Droid Charge and Infuse 4G. While at that, Samsung asks that only their lawyers – and not the production team – be allowed to see the upcoming Apple devices.

Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung last month alleged the latter of copying the user interface and design features of big fruit’s devices. Samsung fired back by launching a number of patent infringement lawsuits, aiming at Apple’s products in various countries. While the two company compete, they have been close business partners. Nevertheless, the relationship has not kept Samsung and its telecommunications group from being targeted.

Comments Off

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has just been slapped with a lawsuit -- days before the Golden Globes -- by a public relations firm that is claiming they were lied to and given the boot after 17 years of hard work.

A couple of days before the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was sued with Fraud by Cinepoint Productions. The production claimed that the HFPA did not honor its promise. According to Cinepoint’s lawsuit, filed yesterday in LA County Superior Court, the HFPA guaranteed that its contract with the production will be renewed after its expiration in 2009. Unfortunately, nothing happened.

The Cinepoint Productions pointed out that they did a good job in bringing the Golden Globes from irrelevance to prominence. In fact, the production was able to give the award giving body a $26 million annual deal with NBC starting 2012. But after they were kicked to the curb, Cinepoint Productions is suing for the $2 million fee they would have earned, plus punitive damages.

The HFPA has no response to this issue yet, but All We Like will keep you posted for more updates.
