    Nike Inc on Wednesday filed a lawsuit accusing Lululemon Athletica Inc of patent infringement for making and selling the Mirror Home Gym and related mobile apps whose technology it alleges is too similar to software it pioneered.  In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Nike accused its smaller rival of infringing six patents, including through technology that enables users to target specific levels of exertion, compete with other users, and record their own performance. Lululemon's Mirror Home Gym is a wall-mounted screen that guides users through a variety of cardio classes and other exercises. The Mirror and its apps use similar technology that Nike claims to have invented and patented, including a device that motivates users to exercise, tracks their heart beat and gathers data on their activity, among other functions. Nike, based in Beaverton, Oregon, is seeking triple damages for Lululemon's alleged willful infringement, and a variety of other remedies. Mirror gyms start at $1,195, according to Lululemon's website. The complaint also names Curiouser Products, which operates as Mirror, as a defendant. Lululemon's Mirror Home Gym is...
    Ana Santos Rutschman, Saint Louis University A quiet monthslong legal fight between the U.S. National Institutes of Health and drugmaker Moderna over COVID-19 vaccine patents recently burst into public view. The outcome of the battle has important implications, not only for efforts to contain the pandemic but more broadly for drugs and vaccines that could be critical for future public health crises. I teach drug regulation and patent law at Saint Louis University’s Center for Health Law Studies. Moderna recently offered to share ownership of its main patent with the government to resolve the dispute. Whether or not this is enough to satisfy the government’s claims, I believe the dispute points to serious problems in the ways U.S. companies bring drugs and vaccines to market. US was a major funder of the Moderna vaccine Vaccines have played a crucial role in the response to the pandemic. In December 2020, Moderna became the second pharmaceutical company after Pfizer to obtain authorization from the Food and Drug Administration to market a COVID-19 vaccine in the United...

Is about a paradigm shift for the video game industry, by allowing anyone to access accessibility tools, even your competitors. The company boasts some of the most powerful accessibility options in the video game industry. The same ones used by some of the most successful games on the market, such as Battlefield, FIFA, The Sims or Apex Legends. In addition, EA also makes available to any developer free access to accessibility technology. This move opens the door for developers, both AAA and indie games, to have the opportunity to use accessibility tools to make their video games more inclusive. In total there are five patents that include some of the most important technologies in their games. Among them is the Ping system used by Apex Legends, which already at its launch was a hit on the table for the title. The Apex Ping system not only allows smooth communication without the need for voice chat. It also allows those with...
    The scientist who developed Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine has hit out at the Biden administration's support for waiving intellectual property protections for coronavirus shots.  Suspending patent enforcement for vaccines 'will not increase the number of doses we will have available within the next 12 months,' Dr Özlem Türeci, Chief Medical Officer at Pfizer partner BioNTech, told CNN.  'It will probably act towards increasing chaos in production.'  The Biden administration said on Tuesday that it backs a World Trade Organization (WTO) initiative to temporarily waive patent and trade secret laws preventing some countries like India and South Africa from making their own copycat versions of various companies' vaccines.  Advocates say that letting poorer nations make their own cheaper generics as soon as possible could be a critical boon to global vaccine supply.  Critics say waiving protections would be a symbolic gesture, and argue that even with the secret formulas used to make vaccines like Pfizer's, most countries still would not be able to quickly produce meaningful amounts of vaccine and their attempts could strain the already stretched supply chain of materials.  'It...
    House Democrats who received the most donations from the pharmaceutical industry are declining to support a push to release the patents on COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries, even as Pfizer reports soaring revenue from its vaccine. Pfizer on Tuesday reported $3.46 billion in first-quarter vaccine sales in all but three countries. BioNTech, which which it splits vaccine costs and profit, will report the remaining revenue on May 10.  The company almost doubled its sales projections for the COVID-19 vaccine this year, from $15 billion to roughly $26 billion, citing strong demand for its vaccine. Meanwhile, the nine House Democrats among Congress's top 25 recipients of donations from pharmaceutical industry PACs have all declined to sign on to a letter urging the Biden administration to waive intellectual property rights for the vaccine to let developing countries produce their own supply, according to the Huffington Post. A New Mexico resident poses for a portrait with his vaccination card after receiving his coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine last month. Calls are mounting for the Biden administration to release the patents on COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries...
    Huawei has a plan to compete in 5G without being able to sell its 5G phones everywhere. Today, the technology company announced that it intends to seek royalties from companies like Apple and Samsung in exchange for the use of its patents, according to Bloomberg. Huawei believes it can strike licensing deals despite sanctions in the US, and it plans to use its earnings to invest even further into research and development. Huawei obtained patents on new technology during the development of the larger 5G standard — alongside companies like Qualcomm and Ericsson — that are needed for interoperability between different 5G networks, according to CNBC. “Huawei has been the largest technical contributor to 5G standards,” Huawei’s head of intellectual property rights, Jason Ding, said in a statement. The company intends to charge up to $2.50 per phone that uses its 5G patents. Huawei believes its patent business shouldn’t be impacted by ongoing sanctions, Bloomberg notes. The company’s patent earnings are already large. Ding estimates Huawei will earn between $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion from patent licensing between...
    Increasingly shut out from both the international phone and infrastructure markets, Huawei plans to monetize its patent portfolio more aggressively. The company said it would charge phone makers like Apple a “reasonable” royalty fee capped at $2.50 per device to license its collection of 5G patents. To put that fee in perspective, it’s less than rivals like Nokia and Ericsson currently charge companies to access their 5G tech and significantly less than the $7.50 per device fee that famously led to years of litigation between Apple and Qualcomm. Huawei estimates the strategy will help it generate as much as $1.3 billion in additional revenue between 2019 and the end of 2021. According to CNBC, it’s estimated 18.3 percent of Huawei’s 5G patent families fall under the Standard Essential Patent category. As the name suggests, those are critical to wireless network standards like 5G and LTE. In many cases, phone manufacturers can’t make a phone that can access those networks without licensing some of those patents. And as it just so happens, Huawei has the most in use 5G-related SEPs...
    A smartphone with the Huawei and 5G network logo is seen on a PC motherboard in this illustration picture taken January 29, 2020.Dado Ruvic | Reuters GUANGZHOU, China — Huawei will begin charging smartphone makers a royalty to use its patented 5G technology as the Chinese technology firm looks to open a new revenue stream, even as other parts of its business have taken a hit due to U.S. sanctions. The company said that it will charge "a reasonable percentage royalty rate of the handset selling price, and a per unit royalty cap" at $2.50 for smartphones capable of connections to 5G and previous generations of mobile networks. This price is lower than some of Huawei's competitors including Finnish telecoms company Nokia. Charging royalties on key patents related to cellular technology could help Huawei make up at least part of the revenue hit in other parts of its business, such as smartphones, as a result of U.S. sanctions. In the past, Huawei has charged royalties to companies such as Apple.5G patents and how they workWhen a new generation of cellular...
