Legal Well well well well well, paint me red and call me a girly scout. I've been saying for months now that there's much more collaboration between Apple and Microsoft than their respective fanboys want to believe, especially when it comes to fighting Google and Android, which both companies partly do via patent suits. More evidence for this has emerged today. Remember CPTN Holdings, the consortium led by Microsoft which bought that bundle of patents from Novell? Which other companies are part of this consortium? EMC. Oracle. Apple.

A defensive action by Apple

Apple is the most sued phone maker.

Apple can beat it's competitors by making better products that sell more and make more profits than their competitors. It does that now and it will continue to do so.

Apple wants to protect itself form legal assaults from competitors who cannot compete against Apple (Nokia for example).

This is not an offensive but a defensive action.
