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.

So much fuss over a blog post by Florian Mueller with no actual facts to back it in any way.

It's pretty clear in Mueller's blog that not only didn't Nokia approach Asus or Google (or if they did no one actually knows so far) but also the answer he got from Nokia wasn't about whether the Nexus7 was infringing but rather about if Google or Asus had licenses for their IP.

Which is largely irrelevant as long as we don't find out if they actually need such license, or if it's Azurewave who deals with that.

I thought that after the Oracle fiasco no one would be paying attention to anything Mueller had to say... I guess I was wrong.
