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.

Yet.. in all those cases.. Apple copied someone else. The company is fantastic at designing products.

They are experts at looking at an existing market then delivering a refined product based on lessons from all the other existing products. Trying to cast them as the victim always copied from is a bit weak though.
