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.


Well, there are laws in some parts of the world that virtually enslave women. Actually, the institution of slavery was codified in laws in some points in history (property laws, no less!). So I guess we can just stop protesting or criticizing anything that is ethically abhorrent if there is a law for it somewhere. As you say, THE LAW IS THE LAW!
