Aereo wins in appeals court

Aereo wins in appeals court

Aereo has survived another legal attack on its web TV service, with the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit rejecting an appeal by the big broadcasters angry with the streaming system the start-up offers. The networks had hoped to overturn a 2012 ruling that gave Aereo the green light to launch in New York City last year, but the appeals court decided that Aereo's service basically follows the path laid down by Cablevision's web-based RS-DVR.

And now, it looks like there's a White House petition going around that seeks for the unbanning of phone unlocking.

Galaxy Nexus ban lifted in Samsung vs Apple case

Galaxy Nexus ban lifted in Samsung vs Apple case

If you thought the Apple vs Samsung court battles were over, you were wrong - evidenced once again today by another big ruling: an overturning of a preliminary sales ban on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus.

Google vs American Publishers suit settles with digital goodness

Google vs American Publishers suit settles with digital goodness

After a court battle that's lasted just a couple weeks short of 7 years, Google and the Association of American Publishers are now announcing a settlement that will put their book-battle to rest. The situation was, back in 2005 that is, that Google was scanning books galore into their Google Library Project for sharing with the world - and five members of the AAP were not happy with that. The settlement that's been reached has cash amounts unannounced - and they'll likely remain unannounced as it's been done out of court - and the publishers now have the rights to take or leave their works in Google's care.
