Professor Lichtman Discusses Smartphone Patent Wars in Interview on NPR's "Marketplace"

October 10, 2011 -- Professor Douglas Lichtman commented on Samsung's efforts to block the sale of the new iPhone ‚Äč4S in France and Italy in an interview on NPR's "Marketplace."

"And that's new," says Doug Lichtman from U.C.L.A. Law School. "Usually, when we see a big fight, it's a lot of lawyers yelling. But everyone knows ultimately they're going to make a financial deal and be done. Apple has crossed the line by changing the behavior on the ground. That's got everyone scared. That's got Google scared, Google's partners like HTC scared. All of a sudden everyone says if you do that to me I'll do this to you and away we go into litigation."
