Apple v Proview with Stan Abrams, Part Deux

Recorded on July 13, 2012

The settlement has been made: Apple paid 60 million USD to get Proview off their back.  The IP case of the century (that had nothing to do with intellectual property) is finally over.

I talked with Stan Abrams a few months ago and he speculated on some of the possible outcomes, the way the case was and would play out, as well as giving me a crash course in China’s legal system.  You can find that episode here. I do recommend listening to a little bit as there’s some really good background on the specifics and context of the original case and dispute.

This edition, we talk about some of the ramifications and conclusions, if any, that can be drawn from Apple’s settlement.
