From Around the Blogs

1.  IPKat has two very interesting posts this morning, one on pending reforms to the law of "groundless threats" in the U.K. (a topic I previously mentioned on this blog here), and another on the possibility that smartphone wars may be brewing in China.

2.  The China-IPR Blog has a post on a draft Judicial Interpretation addressing the topic of preliminary injunctions in China.  For previous discussion on this blog on the topic of preliminary injunctions in China, see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, as well as my book (pp. 351-52).      

3.  I mentioned the other day (here) that a Texas jury had awarded Smartflash a $530 million verdict against Apple.  Patently-O notes that the jury also found the infringement to be willful, which potentially could lead to an award of up to treble damages--though this is hardly automatic, and (who knows?) the law of willful infringement itself may be in flux (see discussion here).  Meanwhile, Smartflash has filed another suit against Apple (see here).  Smartflash also has claims pending against Samsung.
