Patent Battles vs. Doing Business

Ivan Liu Business Battlefields


Even in Europe and U.S, most 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。

and  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…。’
