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.

If that's how you feel, then why bother reading these patent threads? Where is the problem?

Oh, you know... I figure if some of us do enough bitching about all these patent articles, maybe it might actually inspire Thom and his ilk to post a lot less of them, just like how bloggers keep thinking that telling us about every finger gesture patent lawsuit that comes up might actually result in less patents.

See my previous definition of insanity ;)
