This story of a Softbank-owned patent troll, using the monkey-selfie copyright law firm, suing one of the few diagnostics firms making Covid-19 tests, demanding they be stopped for patent infringement, using *THERANOS* patents... is fucking infuriating.
Backed by SoftBank, Oyo became India's largest hotel chain. But much of its growth was built on dodgy practices, like giving free rooms to the police and listing unavailable rooms, current and ex-workers said. A thread on the @nytimes investigation.
RHP Carter Stewart, who attended Eastern Florida State College after failing to sign with the #Braves as the No. 8 overall pick in last year’s draft, is in agreement on a contract with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of the Japanese Pacific League, sources tell The Athletic.
