The Lawyers of Substack

This week, David Lat, who founded the blog Above the Law in 2006, and who earlier, in 2004, started the anonymous blog Underneath Their Robes, and who left blogging two years ago to take a job as a legal recruiter, is returning to writing as a full-time livelihood. But this time, Lat will not be publishing his writing on a blog. Instead, he will be publishing a newsletter on Substack, hoping that enough subscribers ante up $5 a month to support him in his craft. As someone who gained near-celebr...

"With a software update that arrived this week called iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, Apple is finally forcing apps to come clean about a kind of surveillance they’ve been conducting on us for the past decade...."

"Some apps, such as The Sims, Venmo and Shake Shack have been seeking permission to track for a few weeks now. Facebook and its sister app Instagram began asking permission on Monday and the company says it will roll out the pop up — and a screen arguing why you should allow it to track — over the next few weeks. Facebook and other apps that make money by collecting our data and showing us hyper-targeted ads aren’t happy about having to ask permission. Mark Zuckerberg and friends have deluded ...

Podcast Ep. 222: They’re just not that into you?

In this week’s episode of  The Baggage Reclaim Sessions, I talk about why some of us wrestle with ‘he’s just not that into you’. From the 2004 book of the same name and a hilarious episode of Sex and the City, this advice helped us to stop making excuses for disrespectful behaviour and lack of interest. Of men. The general themes, however, apply to both sexes and in LBGTQ+ relationships too. There is, however, an inherent and inadvertent message contained within ‘they’re just not that into y...

Apple Faces Lawsuit for Misleading Consumers on Movie and TV Show “Purchases”

Many an Apple consumer has had a rude awakening when they’ve discovered that their iTunes movie or TV purchases had suddenly disappeared. Owing to licensing issues or regional rights, Apple could delete previous purchases from a user’s library without warning. Naturally, this has earned Apple the ire of people who used their hard-earned money to “buy” these movies or shows, but Apple is insisting that it has not misled consumers on these “purchases.” However, they’re now facing a lawsuit over t...

New iPad Pro for Legal Bloggers

Apple did its first product launch of the year, this week. To fully appreciate the show you needed an eighty-inch monitor and your yellow lab and golden retriever along side. Only the golden retriever watches television. Though Tim Cook and Apple do a heck of a show launching new products, I was most interested in the new iPad Pro. Other than my iPhone, I use an iPad Pro for all of my blogging. I do all of my work on my iPad and iPhone. I have an iMac on the side of my desk but I do...

512(f) Preempts Tortious Interference Claim–Copy Me That v. This Old Gal

“Copy Me That” (I’m pretty sure no IP lawyer recommended that name–it’s like a confession for copyright defendants) makes an app to help users manage recipes. “This Old Gal” (again, who comes up with these names?) publishes recipes. This Old Gal complained to Copy Me That that its users were copying its recipes. This implicates some tough issues about the copyrightability of recipes, but the opinion sidesteps all that. In response to This Old Gal’s complaint, Copy Me That removed This Old Gal’s ...

The Geek in Review Ep. 112 – Dan Packel on the Rise of Distributed Law Firms

MedImmune Licensee Standing Does not Apply to Portfolio License

by Dennis Crouch The Federal Circuit’s new decision in Apple Inc. v. Qualcomm Inc. (Fed. Cir. 2021) offers an interesting standing puzzle. After some heated litigation, Apple licensed 20,000+ Qualcomm patents as part of a six-year covenant-not-to-sue which resulted in the litigation being dismissed with prejudice.  Meanwhile, the parallel inter partes reexaminations (IPRs) moved forward with regard to two particular Qualcom patents within the package of 20,000+. Although the PTAB granted Apple’s...

A Good Sign

I picked up a good sign for tonight’s National Championship Game this morning. Apple has a photo widget for the iPhone that displays photos or a video series of photos, with accompanying music in a random fashion. I am finding that that the widget, which displays the photos or video on your home screen, runs in more than a random fashion. Apple seems to know what the day represents, what I am going to be doing, and even how I am feeling – right at the moment. This morning I awoke to ...

Lawyers Moving Past Passwords

Passwords have been around since the early days of mainframe computing. Believe it or not, passwords were not originally designed to prove identity. The betting money is that computer passwords first showed up at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the mid-1960s in order to track time when using a mainframe computer: The Compatible Time-Sharing System (CTSS). Today, passwords are used to help authenticate the identity of the computer user. From a security perspective, the problem is tha...
