Subject: ITC: How an obscure bureaucracy makes the world safe for patent trolls

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The popularity of the ITC among patent holders was bolstered by the 2006 Supreme Court decision in eBay v. MercExchange. When a patent holder wins an infringement lawsuit, it is sometimes awarded an injunction against continued use of the patent by the infringer, in addition to monetary damages. The threat of such an injunction gives the patent holder extra leverage that it can use to extract larger settlements. For example, shortly before the eBay decision, the patent troll NTP used the threat of an injunction to force smartphone maker Research in Motion to fork over $612.5 million. But the eBay decision made it harder for patent holders to obtain these injunctions, tilting the playing field a bit more toward defendants.So patent holders looked for other remedies.

Subject: Yet more on screencasting with ffmpeg

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With a recent upgrade (apt-get dist-upgrade to 12.04, custom-built Ubuntu) to my office machine, I started having serious audio/video sync issues when producing screencasts using recordmydesktop. As you may (or may not) recall, I record lectures on my computer and use, as a sort of visual aid, an on-screen whiteboard, where I type key words or phrases about which I'm speaking: that's what I capture from my screen when I'm recording these screencasts. Well, with the updated recordmydesktop, the text on my on-screen whiteboard would begin to appear several seconds before the audio about the word or phrase was indicating its appearance.

Subject: Advocacy groups decry Freiburg's stealth return to proprietary office

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In May, plans leaked that Freiburg's IT department is preparing the city's return to using a proprietary office suite, replacing the free and open source suite OpenOffice. That decision is based on a report from an external consultant, which is kept under wraps. The report has not been shared with the members of the city council. Requests by the press and by the Free Software Foundation Europe to publish the report were denied by the city. The state of Baden-Württemberg does not have a Freedom of Information Act. Freiburg has since May also ignored questions on how it will procure the licences for the software that it wants to use. European procurement rules do not allow requests for a specific brand or product.
