Submission + - Nokia & HTC slay troll, troll regenerates (bloomberg.com)

Ceriel Nosforit writes: “This is a great victory for us,” HTC’s German lawyer, Martin Chakraborty, said after the ruling. “The part that’s left for IPCom now won’t help them much in the case pending in civil court against us.” *** After IPCom lawyers narrowed the range of technology they said was protected by the patent, the court backed those claims. “It’s a very positive ruling for IPCom because the patent is now valid,” IPCom Managing Director Christoph Schoeller said in an e-mailed statement. “We hope the civil litigation based on that patent will now come to a conclusion we’ve been fighting for years. Nokia and HTC haven’t paid a cent for using the patents for years.”

Submission + - A rare insight into the working of the brain

Ceriel Nosforit writes: "The left hemisphere of neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor's brain stopped working correctly as she had a stroke, and she took this as an opportunity to study how the brain worked from the inside. In the YouTube video of her dramatic, informative and entertaining presentation of her experience, which utilizes a real human brain as prop, she gives us valuable insight about ourselves and how we experience reality."

Submission + - Nordic ISP circumvents spying

Ceriel Nosforit writes: "
The Swedish government has proposed a law which would allow the National Defence Radio Establishment to intercept all electronic communications passing the national border. To meet customers' demand for integrity, TeliaSonera has decided to move the production of e-mail services for Finnish customers to Finland.

TeliaSonera's move is however not completely benevolent, but a necessity for compliance with Finnish privacy laws, as they state in their press release. This is interesting because even in the liberal paradise of Northern Europe Finnish and Swedish law and practice can be in such contradiction. Compare with Echelon & local variants and the rest of the world."
