Someone should tell the president that American patent owners are likely to have more success enforcing their rights in countries like Germany and China than they are at home. Chinese mobile companies, on the other hand, have only a tiny footfall in the US. […] Top 10 smartphone sellers in China for 2017: 1. One would have thought lessons could be learnt and at least some token gesture would be made to recognise managerial errors and promise to improve. In both cases the tribunal considered that these were part of a procedure which was ongoing but not concluded (at that time).
According to this report from a few hours ago: Following critisism [sic] from the industry, the European Patent Office has drafted a proposal to allow exemptions to its Early Certainty Initiative.
