Q&A from a tviNews telephonic interview, dated February 11, 2009.
••• Q. What do you think the big issues were in the Barbie vs Bratz, that made the court give Mattel the victory over MGA.
A: Infringements of Copyrights.
••• Q: In that regards was the infringement based on the Barbie look, name, or as to what the naked doll looked like after dressed?
A: in that case Mattel vs. Bratz wasn't about clothes Matell owned, but about the original sketches. It appears that Mattel owned all of the 1st generation of Bratz doll.
A: In a similiar case, Schwarzenegger sued a company that made a Bubblehead doll and won.

The Movie - NBS WiTEL®™© - WHO'S READY TO BE in the Wireless Telephone®™© "Teléph-on-délgreen" WiMAX187 EMF Induction "earth battery" BUSINESS?
••• In 1902, major newspaper headlines read something like this, "later this month, WiTEL02 will have a public trial run at selected cities in the U.S."
••• "Now there's no way to avoid work," shouts N.B. Stubblefield above the noise of WiTEL02's static, that was new to the world in the 1900s.
••• Indeed, it was easy for the WiTEL author/inventor to dial-up and talk to the person on the other end of the connection, by a twist and a turn of the antenna. The RF signal transmitted DSL-type speeds as we know it today, we walk in a slow turn over the park and pointed in the direction of the user on the other end of the WiTEL02.
••• The signal, coming from the caller holding the NBS WiTEL02 unit 600 feet away in the hotel room, was picked up by long copper wires, looped together to make one large coil loop antenna. The antenna was held together by a sheath of leather covering. The stem of the coil was then placed inside a watermelon buried half way in the ground for an added attraction to the new technology.
••• In 1898, Stubblefield was issued U.S. Patent 600457 for this RF WiFi 187 aerial system he called the "Electric battery," which consisted of an electrolytic coil of iron and insulated copper wire that could be mixed in with various Magnetic properties. The Magnetic energy mixes were buried within dampened clumps of earth pads surrounded by pitchblende, granulated loadstones, and other of. rare- earth-based misfit layered materials, that would create and store electro magnetic potentials the would induce the (EMF) needed to transmit RF signals. • CLICK FOR MORE STORY MOVIE TREATMENT - the Wireless Telephone®™© BUSINESS?
••• As MSU students have suggested. his aerial rods would serve as an independent induction based ground terminal to reacted as the WiFi carrier for his Wireless Telephone®™© unit. He collectively nicknamed, the clumps of earth topped off with aerial rods that networked his WiFi 187 system together, "Teléph-on-délgreen". His "Teléph-on-délgreen" industrial School is now, Murray State University. CLICK FOR YouTube MORE STORY Stubblefield Earth Cell Battery Demonstration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmNoLfjIEac

• • We all know that people are relying on cell phones for more and more of their calls, including calls to 911. CTIA estimates that since the 1996 Telecommunications Act, 911 calls placed annually from wireless phones have increased six fold (from 55,000 to 290,000). The advances in wireless technology allow people to call for help more quickly and from more remote places than ever before. We need to make sure that our location accuracy requirements keep apace with these changes so that consumers can take advantage of all the opportunities wireless technology has to offer.
• • I believe this is an opportunity for the wireless industry and a harbinger of even more success. In the end, I am confident the wireless industry will rise to the occasion and I look forward to working with you and my fellow commissioners on this critical public safety issue.
• • At the same time, we also must ensure that our regulations continue to protect consumers in this new, more mobile world. Indeed, in some ways the wireless industry is a victim of its own success. Because with increased success often comes increased expectations.
• • Today, to your credit, wireless is no longer seen as a luxury, but as a vital means of everyday communication. And the public has growing expectations of how they will be able to use wireless to meet their everyday needs. For example, E911 ensures that when someone dials 911 during an emergency, public safety can easily and reliably find them. To achieve that goal, we need to ensure that our enhanced 911 rules provide meaningful automatic location information that permits first responders to reliably find them.
• • • • Thank you for your time today. I truly appreciate the invitation to be here. CLICK FOR MORE VERIZON'S CEO IVAN SEIDENBERG

Part 05h / Quotes By: Michael C. Donaldson
If you've ever been uncertain before a negotiation, felt beaten up after, or thought you could have and should have negotiated better, Fearless Negotiating shows, step by step, how to erase your fears and preconceptions and tap into the master negotiator that lives within you. This short and compelling guide is an essential companion to achieving more rewarding, meaning, and mutually satisfying business and personal relationships and outcomes.
Negotiating is all about getting what you want in life. And whether it's closing a multimillion-dollar deal, buying a home, or debating body-piercings with your teenager, the basic negotiating skills required are always the same. You'd be surprised how quickly you can master those skills, with the right coach to guide you, and you'd be amazed at how your life can be transformed once you do.
