Legal The legal fire between Barnes & Noble and Microsoft is flaring up even more. B&N has filed a compilation or prior art to Microsoft's patents. B&N is proving just how easily and quickly Samsung, HTC, and other buckled to Microsoft's protection racket: we're talking 43 (!) pages of prior art, drawing from things like old Netscape releases, GNU Emacs, and much more. If B&N can create such a monumental list of prior art, why didn't Samsung or HTC? Amazing.

There is an easier way to do this. Have the B&N lawyers engineers rewrite the offending patents they are accused of into plain simple English summary and post it to the web for crowd help. That would have found a few just to get the ball rolling.
