Legal "Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, began arguing its U.S. trade case that Android-based smartphones made by Motorola Mobility Holdings use technology derived from Microsoft inventions. In a trial that began today before the International Trade Commission in Washington, Microsoft accused Motorola Mobility of infringing seven of its patents and requested a halt to imports of certain Motorola phones. The ITC has the power to stop imports of products that violate U.S. patent rights." Hey at least these patent trolls ensure we got stuff to write about.

"Or just keep bitching about it on tech blogs, like Thom does, and hope that some congressman logs in one day and finally sees the light."

I do think it's important to keep the issue in the spotlight, even though the topic is repetitive.

Attacks on freedom is not something to take lightly. If we ignore the battles we will loose the war.
