Google This I didn't expect. While we've had individual people high up Google's chain of command speak out, there wasn't yet any form of official response to the patent shenanigans surrounding Android. For the first time, the company has posted on the official Google Blog about the issue, and the company is clear. Several companies, including Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle, are working together to attack Android through patents. Google is not going to sit back and take it, though. Update: Stuff just got real. Popcorn! Or better yet, coffee!

At which point Microsoft, Apple, Oracle, and others will try and buy the European Parliament the same way they bought US Congress to bring software patents to Europe.

And we, the people, are too busy caring about celebrities.

I think, it will not be so easy, the EU cares a lot about Software and they will not change that quick! we have a lot of european moving to the use to develop Software there. It hurts me that Nokia (the last european Platform Software & Hardware House) is just dying ;) ; Europa, Asia und the world has a lot of great mind, but they believe they can only be successful in the USA, even though the immigrant-Politic just got real bad

I should sleep, it getting to political ;)
