Steve Jobs Anecdotes and the Impact of Adobe’s Open Screen Project on IP

August 21, 2012

LONDON, August 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Legal iQ recently conducted an interview with Dave McAllister, Director of Open Source
at Adobe Systems about the latest Open Screen developments.

Dave talks to Mikk Putk, IP Insiders [http://ipinsiders.com ] blogger, about the risks
when tying open innovation to business strategies and how it affects intellectual property
protection (IP): “[By releasing] a technology as open source…Adobe’s belief is that we
are making the directly related patents that we hold on that available for others to use.”

Dave then speaks to Stephen Jenei, Patent Baristas [http://www.patentbaristas.com ]
blogger, about the ongoing Apple v. Adobe/Flash Player v. HTML5 dispute and the future of
Flash and open development at Adobe: “Flash and the Flash platform, which includes Adobe
AIR, have moved to providing unique capabilities to marketplaces that are interested in
advanced features. So we’re seeing Flash continue to innovate, but move the standard
capabilities off to other platforms.”

He offers some exclusive reflections on his work with Steve Jobs: “He honestly was one
of the most futuristic geniuses I’ve ever seen, able to figure the directions for the
broad-based consumer and the high-end prosumer.”
