Legal So let me get this straight. Nokia claims that the Nexus 7 infringes upon standard essential wifi patents, and that Asus does not have a license. How in the name of hell is it possible that Asus has been shipping a gazillion wifi-enabled products every year for god knows how long now, and only now does Nokia notice? Wait - of course. Silly me. If you can't compete, litigate. D'oh.

Standards should not be patent encumbered PERIOD. File your patents all you want but keep your shitty patents AWAY from standards. how about that. All this bullshit about FRAND is missing the point. patent encumbered standards BLOCK free products from the market place and they block open source from participating in that standard so all your cheerleading about FRAND is totally missing the point.
