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!

While I do absolutely not defend software patents, I find it bit silly to claim that those to sue only compete by litigation. I think it is fairly obvious that they are doing both: suing based on stupid patents and improving their products.

Of course, the ideal would be if they only were improving their products.
