Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

But not the infrginger... who has a massive legal team of their own?

Because... let me guess... that's the side you're on, right?


The infringer is already blamed on the courts if the case holds merit (and sometimes even if it doesn't).

Anyway, when it comes to software patents you are right: I sympathize with the infringer, and not because I condone the infringement per se but because I completely disagree with the concept of patents on software.
