11:26 EDTIDCCAppeals court affirms lower court judgment in Microsoft, Motorola patent suit
The 9th Circuit Appeals court affirmed the judgment of a district court in a patent lawsuit between Microsoft (MSFT) and Motorola, which is now owned by Google (GOOG). In its ruling, the appeals court wrote: "With the partiesí consent, the district court conducted a lengthy, thorough bench trial on the RAND rate and range. The court analyzed that evidence in its exhaustive findings of fact and conclusions of law, in a manner consistent with the Federal Circuitís recent approach to establishing damages in the RAND context. The courtís factual findings were properly admitted at the jury trial. The juryís verdict was supported by substantial evidence, and its damages award was proper." In a tweet after the ruling was released, Markman Advisors, which specializes in patent law, stated that Microsoft, Qualcomm (QCOM), InterDigital (IDCC) and others will be affected by this ruling, which it characterized as "tough for licensors of standard-essential patents."

06:08 EDTNOKNokia receives European Commission approval for Alcatel-Lucent acquisition
Nokia (NOK) announced that it has received approval from the European Commission for its pending acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent (ALU). The proposed transaction was notified to the European Commission on June 19, 2015 and was cleared today without conditions following a Phase 1 review. Approval by the European Commission follows previously disclosed antitrust clearances in Brazil and Serbia and the expiration of the antitrust review period in the United States. In addition, the parties confirmed today they have received further antitrust clearances from Albania, Canada, Colombia and Russia. Both companies will continue to cooperate with the remaining authorities to close their reviews as quickly as possible. The transaction remains subject to approval by Nokia shareholders, Nokia holding over 50.00% of the share capital of Alcatel-Lucent on a fully diluted basis upon completion of the public exchange offer, receipt of other regulatory approvals and other customary conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2016.
