Anti-piracy App Launched, Teaches Youths The Effects Of Piracy

Anti piracy App Launched, Teaches Youths The Effects Of PiracyWhen it comes to piracy, there are those who believe that downloading songs is alright, and then you have those who think that it is wrong. There are many reasons why people download, because it is free, or because they want to see if they like it, but in the eyes of the law, it is illegal and that is something an anti-piracy app has recently been launched in the UK where it hopes to teach the younger generation the effect of piracy on recording artists. The app, dubbed Music Inc, is a collaboration between UK Music, the Intellectual Property Office, and Aardman Animations. (more…)

    HTC To Modify Some Of Its Devices After Nokia Lawsuit

    HTC To Modify Some Of Its Devices After Nokia LawsuitBack in early 2013, Nokia filed a lawsuit against HTC alleging that the Taiwanese company had infringed upon its patents. So far Nokia has been successful with their lawsuit against HTC, winning an injunction against the company’s devices and further pursuing them in international markets, such as France. Well it looks like HTC has decided that perhaps modifying their handsets would be a better solution rather than to keep fighting it out in the courts, and in a filing at the Taiwan Stock Exchange, HTC said, “We are investigating modifications for our handsets to remove this redundant technology.”

    HTC expects that there will be little disruption to the company and their customers during the period in which they modify their handsets. It is unclear if there might be some stock shortage during this process, but then again we expect many customers could be holding back from purchasing older HTC devices in favor of the upcoming HTC M8, but we guess we will have to wait and see. Hopefully the modifications that HTC makes will not infringe upon any of Nokia’s other patents, although the smart thing would probably to take out a licensing deal with Nokia which might pay off in the long run.

    Lawsuit Claims Gogo Overcharges For In Flight WiFiWiFi in cafes, schools, and work places are pretty common. However WiFi in airplanes, that’s a different story. For the longest time ever, airplanes did not come with WiFi and entertainment came in the form of the small screen in front of the passenger, but with our need to stay connected these days, it was inevitable that WiFi was introduced to airplanes, although it did not come cheap. In-flight internet provider Gogo is one of the companies that provides WiFi to airline passengers and they have recently been hit with a class action complaint where the complainants claimed that the company has entered into illegal exclusive contracts with airline companies in a bid to overcharge customers for WiFi use.

    Connected Vehicles Might Be A Legal Requirement In The Future

    Connected Vehicles Might Be A Legal Requirement In The FutureOne of the reasons why there are car accidents is because drivers aren’t paying attention on the road, either due to talking on the phone or texting while driving. Other reasons could also include inconsiderate drivers who might brake suddenly or switch lanes without indication. Our ability to avoid these scenarios are sometimes based on our reactions and how fast we can react to such a situation, but since not everyone has quick reflexes, connected cars might be a viable solution.  (more…)
