Netflix Takes on Blockbuster: Netflix Sues Blockbuster
Topic: Technology News

Blockbuster Sued for Alleged for Patent-infringement by Dallas-based Netflix

What goes around comes around. Blockbuster used to make millions from charging its own consumers late fees. Before Netflix, the online DVD rental service, consumers had to put up with the greed managed by Blockbuster. If you are late to return the video, you are going to pay some fees. That was Blockbuster's deal.

Enters Netflix Inc. The online company rents a DVD for an unlimited time without incurring late fees. For seven years, it has been like this with Netflix.com. Consumers embraced this business move which gave it a competitive edge over Blockbuster. In front of the record profit made by Netflix, Blockbuster decided to drop the late fees. Now Netflix is charging Blockbuster illegally copied its ideas. So it filed a lawsuit in U.S. district court in San Francisco. Netflix accuses Blockbuster of stealing the idea of renting a DVD for an unlimited time without incurring a fee. Netflix thinks it is a patent-infringement case.

Amazon Execs Got Scolded by Judge in Resolving Dispute with Torys R Us Inc.
Mood:  chatty
Topic: Technology News

Amazon.com was found to have breached a contract with Toys R Us In. So the judge hearing the case took the opportunity to lash out at Jeff Bezos and his cohorts. Jeff received a public castigation. She called them "obstinate, arrogant and childish." The judge was fed up with the company's top execs' behaviors. The judge did not mince her words. She used harsh words. Well, Superior Court Judge Margaret Mary McVeigh found that Amazon breached its contract with Toys R US which was supposed to be the exclusive supplier of toy products on the hot Amazon.com site.

The judge accused Amazon.com's executives of messing with the meaning of words. She accoused them of tweaking words such as exclusivity to suit their company's needs. She criticized Jeff Bezos's recollection of events. He had displayed selective memories. The judge was in control of her court room. She gave those virtual guys a dose of reality!
