ER Company

EP company wants to shield the litigation for patent infringement. This new purchase included patents ranging from servers and desktop hardware, computer security or circuit design. Within this strategy, Google acquired in August Motorola Mobility. Google has acquired more than 1,000 manufacturers IBM patents, as part of its moves to strengthen its strategy. In this way, Google reinforces its shield against litigation that several companies have made against Android for infringement of patents, many of them coming from Apple. The agreement took place on August 17, according to shows the legal document of the Patent Office of United States that has been registered now movement, but at the moment the price by which Google has carried out the acquisition is unknown.

This new purchase included patents ranging from servers and desktop, to computer security hardware, design circuits, user authentication, and so on. The company also acquired over 1,000 patents from IBM the month of July, strategies that expanded in mid-August with the purchase of Motorola Mobility by 8.724 billion euros, a move that would assign them some 17,000 licenses. He also transferred several licenses to HTC, purchased in 2010 to companies like Palm and Motorola. This sale took place on 1 September, and the maker of mobile phones used them to sue again to Apple last week. With this demand, HTC was intended to prevent the importation and sale of Apple products that infringiesen patents in the United States, in addition to receiving compensation for damages for deliberate infringement.

Google is not the only company that has shielded licensing. In mid-July, several companies, including Apple, Microsoft and RIM, acquired more than 6,000 patents to Nortel Networks – which declared bankruptcy in January 2009–for 4.5 billion dollars (3,240 million euros). In fact, Apple won this week legal battle with Samsung in Germany, achieving this could not sell their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets. Galaxy devices are considered as the biggest rivals to Apple products, and apparently, Samsung touchscreen tablet has a design too similar to Apple’s iPad. The acquisition of patents has become a very important asset for companies that move in an increasingly competitive technology market. In this way, Google has achieved a broad array of licenses, necessary to give support to the manufacturers of your operating system Android, before the patent war that is taking place in the sector. Source of the news: Google buys more than 1,000 IBM patents to protect its Android operating system.

The Government

The thing comes to us by the electoral computer theme. Remember that the captahuellas made its inaugural appearance and their work during the Revocatorio of the year 2004 and ensured the continuity of the regime. I have impression that the opposition is not weighted uncomfortable the seriousness of this matter in depth. We have still time to act and enforce all necessary technical guarantees that respect the secrecy of the vote and electoral notebook will not disappear. The technical Commission recently appointed by the Unit table must explain to us to all Venezuelans, both to those who we know of the technical subject, to those who don’t know, different proposals negotiated with the Government so that Venezuelans can have security and the assurance that there will not be any disruption in the process and the votes are counted as they should count, without disturbances.

Unfortunately I have not yet seen any pronouncement of the MUD in the direction of categorically rejecting the dematerialization of Electoral notebook. It seems that they have not given importance and the Government and the CNE have advanced in that claim. Much yet for the elections but they must begin to publicly discuss the implications of this new proposal of the CNE. The Government always tends to recede when public opinion heats and they have no arguments to sustain an action. We must begin to alert the public about this deviation from the process, as indeed I begin to do from here. And although the CNE is imposed on the purchase of your new machines and new technological procedures, the technical representatives of the opposition will then have the very serious responsibility to alert us of all the real implications for new Government skipping out with theirs, and propose a technical course of action to safeguard our rights. Again, anything that makes the CNE technically may be neutralised with security being present in all tables of parties and civil society representatives, and auditing what has to audit, there is no other warranty.

If we are not at all the tables the length and breadth of the country, technically will prevail and anything you invent with these new machines certainly us desfavorecera. One thing is certain: If Chavez does not have the votes on the street, can be confident that will take them into the machines. And they already know that they do not have them in the street and it’s our challenge which, if this is the case, nor have them on machines.
