Gang of Four, a veteran British group, takes its name ironically from the clique of powerful hardliners during China's Cultural Revolution, although the name's connection to the communist nation appeared to be coincidental for the festival. The Beijing festival, which started in 2007 and has rapidly grown amid a boom in live music in China, will for the second year put on a version in New York's Central Park, on October 4.

Apple persuades U.S. judge to void $533 million iTunes award

Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 07/08/2015 - 22:15

A view of the Apple logo on the flagship store on 5th Avenue in New YorkA federal judge has thrown out a $532.9 million award against Apple Inc and ordered a new trial on damages, in a case where a jury found that the iPhone maker's iTunes software infringed three patents owned by a Texas company. In a decision on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap in Tyler, Texas, said jurors who on Feb. 24 awarded the damages to Smartflash LLC because of Apple's willful infringement might have been confused by his instructions on how to properly calculate royalties. Apple had argued that the damages were too high because jurors might have improperly considered the entire market value of the products, rather than distinguishing between patented and unpatented features.
