Guillermo Del Toro has finished the script for DC Comics’ ‘Justice League: Dark’ movie

Guillermo Del Toro has reportedly finished writing the script for a film interpretation of DC Comics’ Justice League: Dark, the comic book series that combines the talents of heroes such as Swamp Thing, Hellblazer‘s John Constantine, and Zatanna. According to Forbes, Del Toro’s movie, tentatively titled Dark Universe, has gone to Warner Bros. for evaluation, but it’s still very early in the process. Should it make it through to production, and should Del Toro sign on to direct, the movie might not see release until 2018, so packed is the Pacific Rim director’s schedule.

in addition to a huge slate of standalone superhero outings, DC already has two Justice League movies on the way, featuring Henry Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s…

Department of Justice ends investigation into Samsung’s potential patent abuse

The US Justice Department announced today that it will close its investigation into Samsung’s use of patents to attack rivals like Apple. This decision comes after Samsung filed a patent infringement complaint against Apple at the US International Trade Commission and won an order in June 2013 to ban the sale of some iPhone and iPad models in the US. The ban was vetoed by President Obama last August, and now the Justice Department is stating that it sees no reason for the investigation to continue.

The Department of Justice has been investigating Samsung’s use — and potential misuse — of “standards-essential patents” (SEPs) for years now. Companies have to license these kinds of patents to rivals under fair, reasonable, and…

Justice Department publishes 191 pages of evidence against Kim Dotcom and Megaupload

The US Department of Justice unsealed a summary of the evidence it has collected against Kim Dotcom, Megaupload, and other alleged conspirators on Friday. The 191-page document lays out details on how Megaupload and its associated sites, employees, and operations — termed the “Mega Conspiracy” — operated and, according to the DOJ, committed racketeering conspiracy, copyright infringement, and money laundering. The investigation concludes that Megaupload made over $ 150 million in revenues from premium memberships over the years, plus over $ 25 million in advertising revenues. Those revenues are said to be a direct result of Megaupload’s willful promotion of copyrighted materials.

Perhaps the most interesting revelation from the…

Apple says the Department of Justice is investigating Samsung over patent abuse

frand 555

In a legal filing with the US International Trade Commission, Apple has revealed that the US Department of Justice is investigating Samsung over its alleged use of FRAND patents to harm competition. An investigation was hinted at back in June in a Bloomberg report, and Dow Jones reports today that the DOJ has been working on the probe for several months. The agency’s interest in investigating FRAND-related matters, however, is not a surprise: after approving Motorola’s merger with Google earlier this year, the DOJ said that it will be on guard against improper use of essential patents in the mobile industry and “will not hesitate to take appropriate enforcement action” against violators.

Apple’s filing with the ITC is the latest in its…
