Legal And yet another major Android vendor will pay protection money to Microsoft. "Microsoft and LG Electronics have signed a patent agreement that provides broad coverage under Microsoft's patent portfolio for LG's tablets, mobile phones and other consumer devices running the Android or Chrome OS Platform. The contents of the agreement have not been disclosed." You know your technology sector is terminally ill when this sort of bullshit is considered normal.

>> Why do you guys always think that businesses should play fair?
I disagree. In a civilized society 'playing fair' is the ultimate goal. Corruption and dictatorship in any community should never be encouraged or supported. Simply because some regressive aspect was culturally acceptable in our history is a very weak argument. There are reasons why we no longer view feudalism or slavery as a part of a modern society.

>> Basically capitalism works very much like evolution.
Well, sadly America's new version of capitalism does work like evolution, and the result is becoming very obvious it cannot sustain itself longer than a handful of generations. However, true fair-market capitalism, what we falsely claimed to endorse is a very different economic model.
