Patent Troll Pays Up
Genetec Announces Conclusion of Patent Infringement Case

Genetec, a technology

intelligence solutions, as the company announced that a patent infringement
lawsuit initiated by a non-practicing entity (NPE) was withdrawn by the NPE at
an early stage of the proceedings. In a rare result, the NPE paid an undisclosed
sum to Genetec. In patent litigation in the United States, it is highly unusual
for a plaintiff to pay a defendant to resolve a case.
BLM Protest Backs Retail Crime
Chicago, IL: Black Lives Matter Holds Rally Supporting Arrested Looters
of Black Lives Matter held a solidarity rally on Monday night with the more than
100 individuals who were arrested after a night of looting and unrest in
Chicago. The rally was held at the South Loop police station where organizers
say those individuals are currently being held in custody.
“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store,
because that makes sure that person eats,” Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, said.
“That makes sure that person has clothes.”
Black Lives Matter Chicago organized the rally after unrest throughout the city
early Monday, with police saying that more than 100 individuals were taken into
custody for a variety of offenses, including looting.
“That is reparations,” Atkins said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take
it because these businesses have insurance.”
Chicago's Catch & Release Philosophy
ILL. States Atty Who Abandoned Retail Prosecutions Blamed by Chicago Mayor
Chicago Mayor Blames Kim Foxx, ILL. States Attorney - Handling of Cases
looters caused mayhem on the Magnificent Mile early Monday, Chicago Mayor Lori
Lightfoot and police Superintendent David Brown pointed fingers at a
now-familiar target: Cook County prosecutors and judges.
Without naming State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, Lightfoot called on prosecutors not to
let suspects cycle through the system without consequences. And Brown went so
far as to imply that looters reoffended this weekend after getting away with the
same crimes during the widespread unrest earlier this year, eliminating any
“(Suspects) get released, many charges get dropped, and so they feel emboldened
to do it more,” he said. “Once prosecution and sentencing comes up, there’s no
But Foxx, who is no stranger to accusations that she is soft on crime, flatly
rejected that narrative at a news conference Monday. Her office has not dropped
any looting cases related to recent unrest, she said, calling for a response
“beyond a sound bite and a finger point.”
Critics said looters were
additionally emboldened by a Foxx policy that raised the bar for prosecuting
shoplifting as a felony — a theory Foxx also rejected Monday.
After Chicago Looting and Coronavirus, Businesses Consider Closing Shop
On Jeweler’s Row, businesses saw their
inventory wiped out
The looting that began late Sunday and continued into Monday morning marks the
second time the city has been hit in recent months. After George Floyd was
killed in May while in Minneapolis police custody, widespread unrest left
Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, a strip of high-end stores north of downtown that
has long been a showpiece of the city, and other neighborhoods boarded up.
This weekend, caravans of looters responded to calls on social media,
hitting stores in a wide swath of the city, following the shooting by police of
a 20-year-old man who officers say fired on them first.
Police Superintendent David Brown on Monday said commanders deployed 400
officers to combat the looting, but said that prosecutors and the courts had
failed to make their first rounds of arrests in June stick, making looters feel
there were no consequences for their actions.
Kim Foxx, the Cook County State’s Attorney, said in a separate briefing that her
office had gone ahead with prosecutions on 90% of those charged with looting.
A slowdown in the courts because of the pandemic meant many of those cases were
just now coming to trial, she said.
Large chains such as Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue say they have no plans to pull
out of Chicago, despite damage to local stores. Macy’s is repairing damage and
expects its stores to reopen this week, a spokeswoman said.
Kimberly Bares, president and chief executive of the Magnificent Mile
Association, said her 650 members, including large retailers and hotels, are
looking for a stronger full-time police presence in the area as well as
investments in underserved neighborhoods to address longstanding issues of
inequality. “We need to act now,” she said.

York County, PA:
People stand with man holding 'I AM A SERIAL RETAIL THIEF' sign as part
Last week, Common Pleas Judge Harry M. Ness offered Durell Scales a sentence of
two years' probation, with the first six months on house arrest, if he held the
sign outside the York County Judicial Center that read, "I AM A SERIAL RETAIL
THIEF. 7 PRIORS !!”
Ness had stated that he tried to come up with a resolution that would make a
change in Scales' life. Scales wasn’t alone for long on Tuesday. The York NAACP
organized an effort to bring out people to stand in solidarity with him and call
attention to what they see as an injustice. So several others soon joined him
with signs of their own.
“He is a human being,” said Sandra Thompson, an attorney who’s president of the
York NAACP, “and he is worthy of support.” Thompson said it’s critical to
address the underlying issues that drive retail theft such as addiction.
Treatment doesn’t always work the first time, she said, but dehumanizing someone
is not going to help. She said it’s important to have restorative justice that
makes a difference in peoples’ lives.

The Role of Analytics in COVID-19
How security integrators can help them establish safety through technology.
One way is by measuring elevated skin temperatures of people entering a facility
using thermal cameras. (See “Taking
the Temperature of Thermal Cameras”) Another is by implementing video
analytics to detect non-adherence to health safety practices and trigger audio
reminders about distancing and other guidelines.
One useful security technology that integrators can recommend is video
analytics. When applied and used correctly with directives based on
real-time surveillance of people’s behavior, they can create a positive
encounter for people reentering social settings amidst the ongoing pandemic.
OHSA reports 30,000 COVID Safety Complaints
Employers: Duty to Provide Safe Workplace Extends Beyond Four Walls
Dozens of whistleblower actions have been filed by employees complaining
workplace safety procedures are inadequate. These whistleblower actions
cover more than just the employer’s premises; they also cover the premises of
clients and vendors when an employee is sent there to perform work.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), employers have a legal
obligation to ensure that their employees work under safe conditions free from
hazards. The obligation to provide a safe workplace extends beyond the four
walls of the employer; it extends to when an employee is meeting off-site with a
client or vendor, or working off-site at a client’s or vendor’s facilities
These complaints include allegations that employers are not adequately
protecting their employees from the virus when the employees perform work at a
client’s or vendor’s premises. The increased reporting has been so drastic that
OSHA issued a press release “reminding employers that it is illegal to retaliate
against workers because they report unsafe and unhealthy working conditions
during the coronavirus.”
COVID Impact: Changing Vacation Policies
Vacation Travel Policies May Need to Be Altered Due to Pandemic
Employer attempts to restrict where employees go on vacation to prevent their
exposure to COVID-19 are limited by laws and employee-relations considerations.
However, pre-travel inquiries and advisories are allowed, so long as they are
applied neutrally and uniformly.
"Employers across the country are grappling with the question of whether to
change their vacation policies in light of the coronavirus pandemic and, if so,
how to do it," said Anthony Mingione, an attorney with Blank Rome in New York
New Illinois law makes it a felony to assault a retail worker
who's enforcing face mask rules
Assaulting a worker who is enforcing face mask policies can now be prosecuted as
aggravated battery in Illinois – a felony charge. Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a
law Friday that expands the definition of aggravated battery to include attacks
against a retail worker who is conveying public health guidance, such as
requiring patrons to wear face coverings or promoting social distancing.
"It's clear there is still an even greater need to get people to wear masks –
especially to protect front line workers, whether they’re at the front of a
store asking you to put on your mask or whether they’re responding to 911 calls
to save those in distress," Pritzker said in a statement.
A simple battery charge is considered a misdemeanor and can result in up
to a year in prison and fines up to $2,500. An aggravated battery charge, on
the other hand, is a felony that can result in a sentence of up to five
years in prison – or up to 10 years depending on factors such as the
individual's criminal history – and fines up to $25,000. The new law is

Anonymous Tip Sets Off $57.3M Investigation
Corporate-Governance Failure Questioned
McDonald’s Board Faces New Scrutiny of Investigation Into Former CEO
Some shareholders question handling of Steve Easterbrook’s departure,
supervision of company
board is coming under scrutiny from some investors and corporate-governance
groups for failing to
fully uncover the extent of former Chief Executive Officer Steve Easterbrook’s
inappropriate relationships with employees when concerns first emerged last
The fast-food giant Monday sued Mr. Easterbrook, accusing him of lying
to investigators to cover up relationships with employees to protect his
multimillion-dollar severance package.
The suit, a rare airing of corporate dirty laundry,
follows the board’s decision to fire
cause last November
after he acknowledged a consensual sexting relationship with an employee.
Outside counsel conducted an investigation into Mr. Easterbrook last fall and
shared results with the board, which accepted Mr. Easterbrook’s word that it was
his only relationship with a McDonald’s employee, according to the complaint.
Because the board fired the CEO without cause, he was able to walk away from the
company with a severance package valued at tens of millions of dollars.
McDonald’s now says that Mr. Easterbrook allegedly engaged in sexual
with three additional employees
in the year before his firing, relationships that it says came to light in a
wider review of Mr. Easterbrook’s texts and emails after
received an anonymous tip in July.
The company now says he should have been fired for cause, and it is suing to
reclaim his severance, now
estimated to be worth $57.3
Some investors and corporate-governance groups say the board must now defend its
initial investigation and stewardship of the company to shareholders.
After learning of the
July complaint from an employee,
the board immediately called for a new investigation, according to a person
familiar with the matter.
The board also advised management to further highlight ways for employees to
report company concerns.
The allegation of further relationships “calls
into question the vibrancy of the first investigation,”
said Charles Elson, a corporate-governance professor at the University of
Outside counsel working for McDonald’s last fall reviewed backup data for Mr.
Easterbrook’s company-issued phone and iPad but found no evidence of improper
relationships with other employees, according to the complaint and a person
familiar with the investigation. Investigators looked thoroughly through those
devices, but records of
dozens of nude photos discovered later had been destroyed on that equipment,
the person said.
McDonald’s has long maintained hot lines for employees to report complaints. The
employee who made the complaint in July
did so after a town hall meeting in which executives encouraged workers to come
forward with concerns,
the person familiar with the matter said. McDonald’s sent out a company message
Monday telling employees that they wouldn’t face retaliation for reporting any

Retail Chains Abandon Manhattan: ‘It’s Unsustainable’
Some national chains, both retail and restaurants, are closing outlets in New
York City, which are struggling more than their branches elsewhere.
economic damage in New York has in many cases been far worse than elsewhere in
In the heart of Manhattan, national chains including
J.C. Penney, Kate Spade, Subway and Le Pain Quotidien have shuttered
branches for good. Many other large brands, like Victoria’s Secret and the Gap,
have kept their high-profile locations closed in Manhattan, while reopening in
Even as the city has contained the virus and slowly reopens, there are ominous
signs that some national brands are starting to abandon New York. The city is
home to many flagship stores, chains and high-profile restaurants that tolerated
astronomical rents and other costs because of New York’s global cachet and the
reliable onslaught of tourists and commuters.
But New York today looks nothing like it did just a few months ago.
Manhattan’s major retail corridors, from SoHo to Fifth Avenue to Madison
Avenue, once packed sidewalks are now nearly empty. A fraction of the usual army
of office workers goes into work every day, and many wealthy residents have left
the city for second homes.
Landlords have started filing lawsuits against commercial tenants for not paying
rent, accusing some national brands of trying to take advantage of the crisis.
“In New York City, there is next to no lunch business,” he said. “No one’s
coming in from Connecticut. No one’s coming in from New Jersey.” And, there are
no tourists wandering the streets.

Internal investigations are changing in the age of COVID-19
Before COVID-19, an employee under investigation could be surprised with an
on-the-spot collection at the office under the guise of an in-person meeting or
“routine” request to bring in a device for an IT upgrade or a mandatory security
update. Such strategies are much less likely to be practical or successful
in a remote work environment. “At home” collection may also become impossible if
the employee has opted to work from a second home or another location in a
Employees using their own devices for remote work present a further
complication. Devices like personal phones or tablets usually lack many of the
security protections embedded in a company-provided mobile device and are
therefore more vulnerable to malware, spyware, and co-mingled (personal and
work-related) data. The data is also much more likely to be accessible by family
and friends, increasing the potential for vulnerability as well as foul play.
Upon collection, such data will often need to go through more extensive
screening, and custodians may be more reluctant to cooperate when personal
information is stored on a device targeted for collection. It is also possible
they may use the virus as a pretext and refuse to allow a forensic professional
into their home.
Increasing numbers of companies are turning to remote assisted collection
kits (RACKs), which allow a forensic investigator to gain access to a device
online and gather data directly from it. While RACK collections are
forensically sound and legally defensible, some RACKs are designed to create a
forensic image of a device and can consume large amounts of Internet bandwidth
in the process. With less robust home connections, this can result in the
disruption of ordinary work, or perhaps open the door to delaying tactics or
data erasure on the part of custodians who have something to hide.
Once the data collection phase is complete, COVID-19-related constraints on the
investigation recede from the picture. Processing, reviewing and analyzing files
can proceed as normal - although review teams will be dispersed and have to be
managed via a virtual collaborative workspace.
Remember Zoom Bombing?
Videoconferencing Security Is Getting Better
Thanks to COVID-19, videoconferencing transformed from a minor piece in the
productivity toolkit to an essential one almost overnight.
That transformation came with problems—security being the biggest. Zoom, even as
it evolved into a widely used mainstream tool,
by the tech press for its vulnerabilities. Organizations had to make big
decisions fast about which among the array of new remote-work tools to use. And
that means corners were often cut.
But now that we’re five months into our mass experiment in remote work, how is
videoconferencing security holding up? A quick check-in:
Convenience outweighed security—at first.
When the COVID-19 outbreak emerged,
many companies went for the easy solution,
mainly because they had to implement something in a limited amount of time. But
now organizations have a better understanding of the issues.
Software makers are getting better at working on fixes.
Google and other companies
have taken steps to prevent such attacks on their platforms.
It took a little time, but we may soon find security catching up with user
Compliance has gained importance.
Recently, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure
Security Agency released a document detailing steps for properly securing a
videoconferencing network. The
document recommends barring employees from public Wi-Fi networks,
thoroughly testing videoconferencing platforms, and allowing calls only through
vetted tools. “For optimum risk mitigation, organizations should implement
measures at both the organizational and user levels,” the
document states [PDF].
A once-slow market is expected to keep growing.
Videoconferencing is likely to keep improving, driven by a sudden wave of new
startups, according to TechCrunch.
$207,783: Average Cost of Liability to Fuel Retailers
that Don’t Make EMV Compatibility Upgrades
New analysis from Mercator Advisory Group and Transaction Network Services (TNS)
found that fuel and convenience retailers who fail to upgrade payment equipment
at the pumps could face potential costs of, on average, $17,315 per site, or
$207,780 over 12 months post
Because full liability shifts to the party in the payment chain with the least
secure payment technology once the April 2021 deadline passes, any fuel
retailer who has not updated their AFDs to support EMV-certified chip readers
will automatically lose a chargeback inquiry and be subject to additional
The estimate is based on a 12-location fuel enterprise with sites that are
distributed across low, medium and high risk zones for card payment fraud and
considers the cumulative impact of losses as the locations become targets for
counterfeit card usage. Compounding the losses are the additional network
penalties for excessive disputed transactions. The model takes a decidedly
conservative approach to calculating the cost of the liability shift.

Detectives are investigating after a man was fatally shot early Tuesday morning
at the Countyline Shop & Save in Miramar. According to store owner Eddie
Mustafa, two friends were at the store when one pulled out a gun from his
waistband very casually and held it while chatting with his friend and leaning
on a game machine. Mustafa said the gun went off and the shooter initially tried
to help the victim, but ultimately panicked and fled the scene. “There was no
arguments. They were friends. They were standing side by side and it seems like
it was just an accidental thing,” Mustafa said.

Chicago, IL: Police Nab Suspected Looting Crew In Box Truck
police say they might have caught a looting crew Monday night as suspects were
preparing for more thefts — one night after looters ransacked downtown and River
North stores. Chicago Police Cmdr. Matthew Cline said some of his officers
spotted a rented box truck at Grand and Clark matching the description of the
trucks that some looters used to haul away stolen goods early Monday. The
officers heard movement in the back of the truck, opened it, and found two
people inside, he said. One suspect had a handgun with several rounds of
ammunition, and when the driver of the truck got out police found another
handgun, Cline said. There were no stolen goods in the truck, but there were
burglary tools including a grinder, screwdrivers, pry bars and sledgehammers, he
said. Investigators are checking video of the looting to see if they can spot
the truck and link it to any of the thefts. Cline says the arrests also show
that Chicago police continue looking for those responsible for the looting and
will bring any they find to justice.
