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.

I might also mention that Microsoft is arguing against exactly this type of lawsuit before the Supreme Court right now in its case against i4i. Basically the gist is that companies get flimsy patents on just about anything and then use it against people trying to do legitimate business. Sound familiar?
