Trivia (Wikipedia): Poor man's copyright is a method of using registered dating by the postal service, a notary public or other highly trusted source to date intellectual property, thereby helping to establish that the material has been in one's possession since a particular time. The concept is based on the notion that, in the event that such intellectual property were to be misused by a third party, the poor-man's copyright would at least establish a legally recognized date of possession before any proof which a third party may possess.
In countries with no central copyright registration authority, it can be difficult for an author to prove when their work was created. The United Kingdom Patent Office says this:
"... a copy could be deposited with a bank or solicitor. Alternatively, a creator could send himself or herself a copy by special delivery post (which gives a clear date stamp on the envelope), leaving the envelope unopened on its return. A number of private companies operate unofficial registers, but it would be sensible to check carefully what you will be paying for before choosing this route.
It is important to note, that this does not prove that a work is original or created by you..."
There is no provision in US copyright law regarding any such type of protection. Poor man's copyright is therefore not a substitute for registration....
"... Why Google stooped this deep to copy the files? I suppose, a project lead, pressured by time to market, did not see the implications at a time when Java was regarded public domain ... "
This was the 2007 mobile market in terms of OS market share when the iPhone (IOS) came out:
All three vendors (Nokia, Blackberry, Microsoft) had commercial licenses to Java and generally complied with Sun's iron-clad write-once-run-everywhere requirement. What the email evidence show is that Google knew it needed Java to even come close to catching up with the iPhone. They were willing to pay, but they were not willing to comply with Sun's iron-clad write-once-run-everywhere requirement. So they rolled the dice and hijacked the 37 Java packages and the SSO in broad daylight.
Many US courts have defined "one with ordinary skill in the art" in patent cases as a person with an engineering degree and 4-8 years of work experience in a relevant field. But this is a copyright case. Copyright is legal right that grants the creator exclusive rights for its use and distribution.
Patents generally last 20 years from the date of application. Copyrights vary:
Stanford:" .... How long does a copyright last?
For works published after 1977, the copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. However, if the work is a work for hire (that is, the work is done in the course of employment or has been specifically commissioned) or is published anonymously or under a pseudonym, the copyright lasts between 95 and 120 years, depending on the date the work is published.
All works published in the United States before 1923 are in the public domain. Works published after 1922, but before 1978 are protected for 95 years from the date of publication. If the work was created, but not published, before 1978, the copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. However, even if the author died over 70 years ago, the copyright in an unpublished work lasts until December 31, 2002. And if such a work is published before December 31, 2002, the copyright will last until December 31, 2047."

Graphics chip company NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) has had great success selling its products to enterprise customers. During NVIDIA's latest quarter, the company's data center segment generated $143 million of revenue, up 63% year over year. GPUs are far more efficient than CPUs for certain tasks, leading all of the major cloud computing companies to adopt NVIDIA's products.
Deep learning, where software is trained with data to perform a certain task, like image recognition or natural language analysis, is one application where graphics cards perform well. Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM are all actively employing deep learning, and NVIDIA's Tesla graphics cards are being used to accelerate the process.
While NVIDIA has been successful so far, a recent announcement from Google could create a major problem for NVIDIA's data center business going forward.
At Google's recent I/O conference, the company announced it had developed a custom processor designed specifically for deep learning tasks. The Tensor Processing Unit, or TPU, is an application-specific-integrated-circuit designed to accelerate Google's TensorFlow machine learning software. Google has been running TPUs in its data centers for more than a year, and the company has found that these processors provide an order-of-magnitude improvement in performance per watt. The company boasted that its TPUs effectively push chip technology seven years into the future....
AlphaGo, Google's computer program that beat a professional Go player earlier this year, was also powered by TPUs.Google's computer program that that beat a professional Go player earlier this year, was also powered by TPUs.
"I am not going to give you the actual name of the service, but I will tell you later this year, we're going to launch a service on that software defined network that is going to hit 63 countries at the same time, on the same day," de la Vega said. "You show me a way to do that with a physical network and I would say 'the chances of making that happen are very small.'"
AT&T (NYSE: T) is making a big bet on its global enterprise operations with plans to invest nearly $10 billion in its networks to boost the reach of wireless, cloud storage and security services.
