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.

Nokia has a responsibility to its shareholders to defend its portfolio. It might not be the the most popular choice, but as the law stands things like this is what any good company Should do.


This phrase sounds like a verbatim quote of usual nonsense talk of all patent aggressors. It's like saying "the government has responsibility for its citizens, so we need to attack the neighboring country to get some resources". Aggressors are aggressors. The notion that any good company would do thins is totally wrong. Good ones aren't acting as aggressive thugs.
