Tech firms unite on patent damages

The Recorder: "Oracle, Apple Inc., Yahoo, Intel Corp. and several others are throwing their weight behind Microsoft Corp. as it tries to persuade the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to overturn a $500 million jury verdict for infringing on a Lucent patent. ...In friend of the court briefs filed this month, the tech companies are urging the court to rein in the 'entire market value rule.' The rule allows the calculation of damages based on the whole product, even if just one feature is infringed."
