Apple can
trademark
store layout
The European Unions highest
court says Apples characteris-
tic retail store layout may be
registered as a trademark.
The Court of Justice
on Thursday overturned a
decision by German patent
authorities which last year
rejected an application to
grant copyright protection to
Apples store design paral-
lel lines of big tables with
electronic gadgets spread out
on them under a high ceiling.
The Luxembourg-based EU
Court said a design pattern
like Apples may constitute a
trademark provided that it is
capable of distinguishing the
goods or services of one under-
taking from others.
The case will go back for
a final decision to Germanys
highest patent court which
had sought the EU judges
advice.
Apple Inc. successfully
registered its store layout as a
trademark in the United States
in 2010. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A do-over?
Beanie Babies
creator defends
probation sentence
Lawyers for the billionaire
creator of Beanie Babies
say a federal judge didnt
let him off too easily by
giving him probation and
no prison time for hiding
at least $25 million from
U.S. tax authorities in Swiss
banks.
In a 57-page filing Thurs-
day with the U.S. 7th Circuit
Court of Appeals, Ty Warner
denies the judge in Chicago
sent a message that theres
a different standard for the
wealthy.
Thats the prosecutors
argument in their recent ap-
peal asking for a do-over of
Warners sentencing. They
want Warner to spend at
least some time behind bars.
In sentencing him to two
years of probation in Janu-
ary, Judge Charles Kocoras
heaped praise on Warner
for his charitable giving.
Tuesdays filing echoes that,
calling Warner a self-made
man with a generous heart.

Those rankings were
based on an analysis the
group conducted using a
tool called the GreenScreen
assessment. It measures a
chemicals impact against
18 human health and en-
vironmental criteria, such
as whether there is evi-
dence they cause reproduct-
ive toxicity, endocrine ac-
tivity, eye irritation or skin
sensitivity. It also looks at
whether the chemicals are
flammable and whether
they accumulate in the en-
vironment.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Samsung is facing a fresh ac-
cusation that one of its China
suppliers hired children to
meet production targets dur-
ing a period of high demand
from the South Korean elec-
tronics giant.
Samsung Electronics Co.
said Thursday it is looking into
the allegation by China Labor
Watch that its supplier Shin-
yang Electronics in Dongguan
hired children and student
workers under the legal work-
ing age.
The New York-based labour
watchdog said children were
hired during a busy production
period, worked for 11 hours a
day without overtime pay and
without social insurance. They
usually left employment after
three to six months when de-
mand from Samsung declined,
but without any severance pay.
The accusation conflicts
with Samsungs recent report
on conditions at suppliers. It
said no child labour was found
by an external audit last year
of about 100 Chinese suppli-
ers.
That audit found 59 suppli-
ers that did not provide safety
equipment to employees. It
also said excessive working
hours were commonplace.
China Labor Watch said in
2012 that Samsung was turn-
ing a blind eye to child labour
at its suppliers in China where
billions of Apple Inc. and Sam-
sung smartphones are assem-
bled. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Canada should ban two anti-
bacterial chemicals used in
many consumer products that
are accumulating in the wat-
ers of the Great Lakes, a re-
port issued Thursday said.
The report, from the Can-
adian Environmental Law
Association, also suggested
Canada, the United States and
all provinces and states bor-
dering the Great Lakes should
prohibit use of the chemicals
and assess proposed alterna-
tives before they are used.
The two products are triclo-
san and triclocarban, which
are used alone and together in
products such as toothpaste,
body washes, bar soap and
clothing. The chemicals are
even found in yoga mats.
Used for decades, the
chemicals have been coming
under increasing scrutiny in
recent years.
In December, the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration an-
nounced it was reconsidering
the safety of antibacterial
soaps and other antibacterial
personal care products be-
cause of concerns the chem-
icals they contain may disrupt
human hormones and con-
tribute to the development of
antibiotic resistance.
Then in May, Minnesota
made headlines when it
banned triclosan. The report
called triclosan a chemical of
high concern and triclocarban
a chemical that should be re-
placed with safer alternatives.

Canada should ban two anti-
bacterial chemicals used in
many consumer products that
are accumulating in the wat-
ers of the Great Lakes, a re-
port issued Thursday said.
The report, from the Can-
adian Environmental Law
Association, also suggested
Canada, the United States and
all provinces and states bor-
dering the Great Lakes should
prohibit use of the chemicals
and assess proposed alterna-
tives before they are used.
The two products are triclo-
san and triclocarban, which
are used alone and together in
products such as toothpaste,
body washes, bar soap and
clothing. The chemicals are
even found in yoga mats.
Used for decades, the
chemicals have been coming
under increasing scrutiny in
recent years.
In December, the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration an-
nounced it was reconsidering
the safety of antibacterial
soaps and other antibacterial
personal care products be-
cause of concerns the chem-
icals they contain may disrupt
human hormones and con-
tribute to the development of
antibiotic resistance.
Then in May, Minnesota
made headlines when it
banned triclosan. The report
called triclosan a chemical of
high concern and triclocarban
a chemical that should be re-
placed with safer alternatives.

Fresh claim of child
labour at China supplier
Samsung is facing a fresh ac-
cusation that one of its China
suppliers hired children to
meet production targets dur-
ing a period of high demand
from the South Korean elec-
tronics giant.
Samsung Electronics Co.
said Thursday it is looking
into the allegation by China
Labor Watch that its sup-
plier Shinyang Electronics in
Dongguan hired children and
student workers under the
legal working age.
The New York-based
labour watchdog said chil-
dren were hired during a busy
production period, worked
for 11 hours a day without
overtime pay and without so-
cial insurance. They usually
left employment after three
to six months when demand
from Samsung declined, but
without any severance pay.
The accusation conflicts
with Samsungs recent report
on conditions at suppliers.
It said no child labour was
found by an external audit
last year of about 100 Chinese
suppliers.
That audit found 59 suppli-
ers that did not provide safety
equipment to employees. It
also said excessive working
hours were commonplace.
China Labor Watch said in
2012 that Samsung was turn-
ing a blind eye to child labour
at its suppliers in China
where billions of Apple Inc.
and Samsung smartphones
are assembled.

BUSINESS Thursday, July 10, 2014
Looking back on the rst half of
2014 in the Atlantic Canadian
startup world, theres not a single
event, company or story that
stands out as a singular highlight.
So in writing a wrap-up of the
rst half, I think the dominant
feature would really be a state of
mind that didnt exist six months
ago. Its a new-found maturity.
There were lots of candidates to
be highlights of the rst half. The
Big Data Congress in Saint John
and Atlantic Venture Forum in
Halifax were both successfully
held for the second time. St.
Johns held its rst Innovation
Week. There were exits by
UserEvents of Fredericton and
Compilr and Newpace, both of
Halifax. PropelICT of New Brun-
swick and the P.E.I. BioAlliance
both received federal funding
under the Canada Accelerator and
Incubator Program that will
change the scope of their work.
All of those are great, but
theres a bigger story in this sec-
tor. People were pleasantly sur-
prised when Entrevestor reported
in March the startup community
now directly employs about 3,000
Atlantic Canadians, and is indir-
ectly responsible for about 15,000
jobs in the region.
Yes, that was a shameless plug,
but the ndings of our survey
were reported in the National Post
and several regional media out-
lets. And they set a baseline from
which to assess future employ-
ment growth. They also showed
that young innovative companies
are becoming a force in the eco-
nomy.
That message was borne out
two months later when 26 com-
panies pitched to investors from
the region and across the contin-
ent at the Atlantic Venture Forum.
As we reported recently, 22 of
these companies revealed their
revenue for the past two years,
and in total they booked $4 mil-
lion in 2013. For this year, theyre
expecting revenue of $13.8 million
an increase of almost 250 per
cent. Eight of the companies are
expecting revenue of $1 million or
more.
Heres the thing about the At-
lantic Venture Forum pitchers:
they werent out of the ordinary.
Yes, there were some great
startups that were pitching, but I
believe the organizers could have
chosen another 26 companies
with no decline in quality.
There are a handful of Atlantic
Canadian startups that are shoot-
ing ahead of the pack and theres
a lot of buzz about Smart Skin
Technologies of Fredericton,
Blue Light Analytics of Halifax
and Halifax Biomedical of
Mabou, among others. Marching
behind them is a regiment of
companies that are growing at an
impressive pace.
If I were asked to name one
thing to watch for in the next six
months, I think the answer would
be the biotech sector. The digital
segment so far has captured most
of the attention in the startup
world, but I think life sciences
could be about to correct that.
Two biotech companies
Neurodyn of Charlottetown and
DeCell Technologies of Halifax
captured the top award for
pitching at the venture forum. The
segment as a whole could produce
a lot of news in the last half of the
year.
Of course, all of this means the
bar is being raised across the
startup community. Weaker com-
panies are being left behind, and
support organizations have to let
them die. Financial and human
resources need to be concentrated
on the best companies. Is that a
harsh reality?
Nope. Its just part of being in a
more mature ecosystem.
More survivors and thrivers than ops

BUSINESS Friday, July 11, 2014
PHILADELPHIA When robots
rst started playing soccer, it was
a challenge for them just to see
the ball. And to stay upright.
But the machines participating
in this months international
RoboCup tournament are making
passes and scoring points. Their
ultimate goal? To beat the human
World Cup champs within the
next 35 years.
Its hard to predict what will
happen in 2050, but we are on the
right path, said event co-founder
Manuela Veloso, a computer
science professor at Carnegie
Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
A week after the World Cup
title game in Rio de Janeiro, teams
from 45 countries will face off at
RoboCup about 1,200 miles away
in the Brazilian coastal town of
Joao Pessoa.
The players, which range
from life-size humanoids to
wheeled objects the size of soccer
balls, compete in size-based divi-
sions on miniature indoor elds.
The tournament runs from July
19-25.
While certainly fun to watch,
organizers say the annual compet-
ition isnt just about creating
kicking machines. Its about
teaching the fully autonomous
robots to make quick, smart de-
cisions while working together in
a changing environment.
Those algorithms can translate
off the eld into technology like
self-driving cars or delivery
drones, said University of
Pennsylvania engineering profess-
or Dan Lee. RoboCup includes
separate contests for service ro-
bots and search-and-rescue
droids.
Lee, who directs Penns robotics
lab in Philadelphia, has been the
head coach of the schools
RoboCup soccer teams since
2002. Back then, the games re-
sembled those played by ve-
year-old children, Lee said.
They would all cluster togeth-
er, he said of the robots. Who-
ever got the ball would have a
hard time guring out which way
to kick the ball.
Now, its like watching
10-year-olds execute basic athletic
skills and strategies, said Lee. The
battery-powered creatures play
much shorter matches about 20
minutes, compared with 90
minutes in the World Cup but
generally follow the same rules.
Humans referee the games, enter-
ing their calls into a computer that
communicates with the robots.
Penn, which has won the past
three years in the kid-size hu-
manoid league, is one of about
eight U.S. universities travelling to
Brazil. Students are bringing a
ve-foot-tall metal humanoid
named THOR (Tactical Hazard-
ous Operations Robot) to play in
the adult-size division, as well as a
squad of smaller plastic white
robots known as Naos an off-
the-shelf model that looks like a
cross between a Star Wars Storm-
trooper and the Stay Puft marsh-
mallow man from Ghostbusters.
Just like humans, the robots
have to practice as students
monitor (but do not control) their
actions in the lab. And, just like
humans, robots can get injured:
THOR needed hip surgery last
month to replace a blown motor.
When RoboCup rst began in
1997, Veloso said, most robotics
research focused on the abilities
of single machines, such as
NASAs Sojourner rover on Mars.
RoboCup seeks to emphasize
machine collaboration, she said.
The team from George Mason
University in Virginia wants to
teach its players to work together
in real time a crucial skill for
using droids to respond to dis-
asters or emergencies. Students
plan to train their 18-inch-tall
humanoids through eld demon-
strations immediately before each
game.
You dont program humans to
play soccer, said team advisor
Sean Luke, a computer science
professor. We want (robots) to
learn how to play soccer the same
way humans learn how to play
soccer.
Georgia Tech plans to compete
using small, boxy robots with
omnidirectional wheels. Student
Lindsey Langstaff, 22, said she
looks forward to working with
other teams to help further re-
search.
You want to be able to bring
something to the table that
nobodys come up with yet,
Langstaff said.
Next year, Veloso said, the
robots might play outside.
Robots take the eld
at post-World Cup tourney
RoboCup competition features articial players from 45 countries
Students at the University of Pennsylvania work with one of their
RoboCup entries last week in Philadelphia. The idea is to program
robots to make quick, smart decisions while working together in a
changing environment. MATT ROURKE AP

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SANTA CRUZ, CALIF. As a
Google executive lay dying on his
yacht, an upscale prostitute casu-
ally walks over him, picks up her
clothes and heroin and swallows
the last of a glass of wine before
lowering the boats blinds and
walking back on the dock to
shore, police say surveillance
footage shows.
Authorities charged Alix Tichel-
man, 26, with manslaughter Wed-
nesday for her role in the death of
Forrest Hayes, who was found
dead by the captain of his
15-metre yacht last November.
Police said the surveillance video
from the yacht shows everything
that happened from the time
Tichelman came aboard to when
she left.
Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief
Steve Clark told The Associated
Press on Wednesday that Hayes,
51, had hired Tichelman before,
and that their Nov. 23 encounter
was a mutually consensual en-
counter including the introduction
of the heroin.
Clark said it appears this might
not have been the rst time she
left someone in trouble without
calling 911 or trying to help.
Without elaborating, he said his
agency is co-operating with police
in a different state on a similar
case.
Theres a pattern of behaviour
here where she doesnt seek help
when someone is in trouble, he
said.
News vans gathered outside
Hayes hilltop estate overlooking
the glittering Monterey Bay,
where the ve-bedroom home is
on the market for $4.2 million.
Hayes widow has not spoken
publicly and a blog created in his
memory was deleted.
On the website, friends and
co-workers were seemingly un-
aware of how he died. They
fondly described their time to-
gether, Christmas parties on his
boat, engineering teams at Sun
Microsystems, travelling to
China for Apple and most re-
cently at Google, where they said
he was involved in the Glass eye-
wear projects.
Clark said its not clear if Hayes
was a frequent drug user, and that
in the video, it appears he needed
Tichelman to help him shoot up.
Clark described Tichelman as a
high-end prostitute, who charged
$1,000 and lived three hours
away in the Sacramento suburb of
Folsom.
He said she had other clients
from Silicon Valley, home to about
50 billionaires and tens of thou-
sands of millionaires.
Theres no question that Silic-
on Valley feels different than it
felt 28 years ago when I moved
here, said Russell Hancock,
president of Joint Venture Silic-
on Valley, an organization fo-
cused on the local economy and
quality of life. Something has
happened. We used to be a Valley
full of techies living middle class
lives, and now were a Valley of
the uber-rich carrying toy poodles
around with them.
Tichelman was arrested on July
4 after police said a detective
lured her back to the Santa Cruz
area by posing as a potential client
at an upscale resort. Clark said
they didnt just arrest her because
they didnt know exactly where
she lived, and they were con-
cerned she would ee.
Police said Tichelman boasted
she had more than 200 clients
and met them through a website
that purports to connect wealthy
men and women with attractive
companions.
Her clients included other
Silicon Valley executives, Clark
said.
Tichelmans father has ties to
the tech industry. Folsom soft-
ware rm SynapSense an-
nounced hiring her father, Bart
Tichelman in 2012. Neither the
rm nor her father responded to
immediate requests for comment.
Santa Clara University Finance
professor Robert Hendershott
said nancial windfalls like those
seen in the Silicon Valley often
bring problems as people have
trouble managing their newfound
wealth. But he said theres no
obvious hedonistic culture in the
Silicon Valley.
Theres no Great Gatsby type
of parties famous in the Silicon
Valley, he said.

The hunt for a new president and
CEO of Nova Scotia Business Inc.
is back on.
The search resumed at the end
of June after being on hold for
about three months.
Shawn Hirtle, spokesman for
the provincial business develop-
ment agency, said Thursday the
board decided to pause the hiring
process until after a pair of recent
studies, the Ivany commission
report on building a new economy
and former Dalhousie University
president Tom Travess review of
economic development tools, had
been released.
Those two reports are now out
and the board has made a de-
cision to move forward, and
knows that the shareholder the
shareholder would be the govern-
ment supports a clear mandate
for NSBI as the business develop-
ment agency, Hirtle said. The
board does feel condent in con-
ducting the candidate search and
a go-forward mandate.
NSBIs board suspended its
search for a CEO in March, saying
it wanted to allow time to consult
with the new Liberal government
before the position was lled.
Hirtle couldnt give a time
frame for lling the position.
Executive search rm Knights-
bridge Robertson Surrette is
helping with the hiring process.
Interim CEO Ron Smith has
agreed to continue in that role
until the end of the year.
The agency has been without a
permanent boss since Stephen
Lunds departure last year. He
took over the running of the Ber-
muda Business Development
Agency but left that position in
February. Lund is now a vice-
president with Irving Shipbuild-
ing.
