Legal Since competing on merit is looked down upon in the computer and software world, companies in this business usually go for the blindfolded chick with the scale and sword. Up until recently, Microsoft didn't go for the whole patent litigation thing, but now that they've tasted some, they want more. They just sued Barnes & Noble, Foxconn, and Inventec for patent infringement because they use Android.

Whether or not you agree with them is moot. The law is the law.


There are also laws against extortion, racketeering, trying to prevent competition (antitrust) and intefering with other people's legal business relations (in this case between Google & Barnes & Noble). Why would you fail to acknowledge those laws?
