You may argue many points about the case, but this one seems hardly worth the time of the supreme court. I can only think they agreed to hear the case out of a desire to ostensibly give Assange™ the possibility to exhaust all possible recourses.
It is very likely that he will have spent more time on appeals than in Swedish jails.
They have to show their data, whether they do an IPO or not. They have too many shareholders to keep it secret. They don't have a choice.
As for raising more cash, what for? Considering they have $3Bn on hand and are not using it, what would they do with more? Buy random companies for the lulz?
Erm: In practice, that means that almost every app from Angry birds to wallpapers asks for every permission in the book. So yeah, you can refuse to install these apps... if you don't want to have any apps on your phone.
Try to find, say, a Sudoku app that asks for NO permissions. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Ie, is it possible to patent an idea, and then refuse to let anybody use that idea? Or, say, ask for a gajillion per second for the license (assuming it is not FRAND)?
Genuinely interested. Logic would dictate it is not, but then again, patents and logic do not mix well.
