Sony, Universal Face Probe for Possible Collusion Against Pandora

TheStreet (July 15, 2014) — The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly investigating possible pricing coordination by Sony's Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Vivendi's Universal Music Publishing. The Justice Department has also requested documents from music licensing organizations, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers and Broadcast Music, according to The Wall Street Journal. The Journal said the Justice Department is investigating Sony and Universal's efforts to withdraw their rights from the organizations' licensing agreements with Internet radio company Pandora. A U.S. District Judge found earlier this year that Sony and Universal coordinated with ASCAP to drive Pandora's licensing rates higher. TheStreet's Brittany Umar has details from New York.

Apple Files for Sales Ban on Nine Samsung Phone Models

Apple Files for Sales Ban on Nine Samsung Phone Models

TheStreet (May 27, 2014) — It's round two in the battle between Apple and Samsung after Apple filed for a sales ban on nine of Samsung's older models of phones. It's the latest in what has been a long legal battle between the companies. Earlier this month, Apple received only $120 million dollars in a patent lawsuit against Samsung, a fraction of the $2.2 bilion dollars it had originally sought in damages. Now, Apple is seeking a ban, arguing it is more important than any monetary compensation won in protecting the three patents it accuses Samsung of infringing. For its part, Samsung says the claims are overblown and a ploy to muscle out the competition. Apple has asked the court to either order a retrial or to review the compensation awarded by the jury.

Apples Rolls Out New Software Updates for Developers at WWDC14

Apples Rolls Out New Software Updates for Developers at WWDC14

TheStreet (June 2, 2014) — Apple introduced new operating system updates at the World Wide Developer's Conference in San Francisco, Yosemite and iOS8. OS X.X for laptops and desktop computers is now called "Yosemite". Updates to the platform allow devices to communicate more effectively with other Apple devices. This will help compete with Google Drive and Google Docs and will push users to stay within the Apple eco system. Apple's newest "employee" Dr. Dre made a cameo appearance by phone to help demonstrate how computers will be able to locate iPhone's within the home. This function will allow users to make and receive phone calls through their computers. iOS 8 for iPhones and iPads helps that process as well. But, there are also updates for sharing pictures and controlling home appliances, Home Kit, and making mobile devices more hands free in vehicles. Users will also be able to aggregate health information from all the apps they use in Health Kit. Sergio Quintana reports from San Francisco. Video provided by TheStreet
