Patent Battles vs. Doing Business

2015 - 10 - 01

Even in Europe and U.S, most patent wars ends up with a truce. There are two reasons, it’s only part of the overall business strategy and it’s usually too costly.

即便在歐美,絕大多數的專利訴訟,都是和解收場。主要原因有二:

(1) 它不過是商戰整體策略之一,邊打仗做做樣子邊談生意,達到目標就該喊撤了;

(2) 打專利訴訟連大公司都嫌貴,如果在美國,一個案子discovery程序還沒走完(更別提進入審判了)經常狂燒百萬美元。

Google and Microsoft have ended a long-running patent spat involving about 20 suits in the U.S. and Germany.

Concerns about ad-blockers have grown following the recent launch of iOS 9, which supports blockers for Mobile Safari.

JPMorgan has downplayed those concerns, arguing most ad-blocking takes place on desktops, that far more time is spent on mobile apps (largely immune to ad-blocking for now) than browsers, that publishers are starting to withhold content from those using ad-blockers, and that ad spend is shifting towards formats more immune to ad-blocking (e.g. native ads).

這是最最粗淺的道理,真正見過世面的老闆都會有相當程度的了解。只有那些不懂裝懂的,才會搬聖經出來,把這種訴訟鬼扯成大衛對抗歌利亞的正邪之戰。

不懂裝懂的老董,自己灰頭土臉不說,還讓股價跳水噗通噗通…。’

Other Cases

Besides the criminal law, corporate law, securities and exchange act, patent law, and fair trade act, there are many laws that are highly important to business owners. 除了本書前面章節裡面談到的刑法、公司法、證券交易法、專利法與公平交易法之外,與公司負責人息息相關的法律還有許多種1,舉幾個例子來說: 勞工安全衛生法(技術性) 勞工安全衛生法之立法目的在於防止職業災害,保障勞工安全與健康2,如該法規定雇主應該要設置必要的安全衛生設備防止特定災害之發生3,還有像是如果是具有危險系的機器設備則是需要經過主管機關之檢查合格後才可以使用4,若違反這些規定而發生職業災害的話就要負擔刑事責任5。 稅捐稽徵法(抽象) 人民都有納稅的義務,各企業行號當然也必須依照稅捐稽徵法之規定繳納各種稅捐,如果納稅義務人有使用詐術或其他不正之方法逃漏稅捐者,依稅捐稽徵法第41條之規定就有五年以下的有期徒刑還可能併科六萬元以下之罰金! 企業都要節稅,但是正當與不正當就會有天差地別的後果。 商業會計法(技術) 商業會計法則是規範公司行號當中的各種會計事務之法規,因為企業的各種財務報對於國家整體的經濟與廣大的投資人來說都有深遠的影響,其重要性不言可喻,所以如果企業的商業負責人或是會計人員有不實製作、銷毀或是偽造變造各種會計表冊時也負擔刑事責任6。 消費者保護法(技術)…
