Bose lost in the Supreme Court ruling 6-3.

Anyway, this whole patent war is ridiculous. One thing that hasn't been said is the fact that technically Bose did not create 'active noise cancelling', they simply implemented the concept (first) in their headsets for commercial and military use. Simply put, noise cancelling is physics. You take the source's sound wave and inverse it, therefore the two waves cancel each other out. Theoretically speaking, virtually anyone with a microphone and speaker can create their own active noise cancelling device. Now if Beats actually pulled a China and literally copied Bose's ANC technology circuit for circuit, as opposed to using their in-house developed ANC technology, then, and only then can I see this being a viable patent case. Otherwise Bose is simply trying to pull off a convenient cash grab from the one of the world's richest company. That said, one simply has to listen to each companies' offering and realize that Beats DID NOT copy Bose's technology. And both still sound like poo to my ears!

LoL - you may have a point with Yamaha black belts.

But ANC sounds like poo to you?

Man that's some heavy schiit issue you got goin on there.

Bose's ANC sound like peace and quiet to me - no schiit wink.gif

No no, just the Bose house sound and Beat's crap-sound, not Bose ANC, and especially not ANC in their aviators .

I dunno, I think Apple employs Mr. Burn's lawyers (or at least that's how I always viewed them). :p

They  would have been better off before Apple took over, me thinks.

Hmm that depends, I have a feeling undre Dr Dre, Bose might have had an eaiser case as I doubt he can defend the product as well as Apple can, but with Apple Bose stands grounds to... do something worthwhile. Attack Dr Dre would do nothing for Bose. Yea he's rich, he capitilzed on a market before any one else, I respect him for that. Techincally though he didn't do anything great or even worthwhile. From a marketing aspect the Beats headphones was a huge win, from a technical stand point... not much going on

 

how ever, for Bose to sue Apple on the grounds of technical infirngements, they do stand to gain something, if they can de bunk apple they stand to gain a share of Apple's customers, I mean there are two things comsumers like, iPods and Beats Headphones

 

Bose used to be super popular before beats came around, and it seems like Bose wants to get back into that market, what better way to build it's customer base than claim that the Beats Headphones Under Apple, are just imitations of previous Released Bose cans? Attacking and winning a legal battle again'st Apple seems to be a smarter move for them as far as building credibility goes or proving it's technical merits

Bose won in a lower court ruling when a Federal District Judge in Mass. found that Consumers Union changed the original draft of the review of the 901 speaker written by the author, who testified against Consumers Union at the trial. The case was appealed, and ultimately Bose lost when they could not prove intentional malice. The case took 14 years to reach its conclusion.

Just to clarify, I agree with the Supreme Court ruling in the Bose case. It preserved our free speech rights. If Bose had won, it would have opened the door to a flood of lawsuits anytime a negative review was written about anything.
