Google There's a bit of a story going on between Google, Acer, and Alibaba, a Chinese mobile operating system vendor. Acer wanted to ship a device with Alibaba's operating system, but Google asked them not to, and Acer complied. The reason is that Acer is a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which prohibits the promotion of non-standard Android implementations - exactly what Alibaba is shipping. On top of that, Alibaba's application store hosts pirated Android applications, including ones from Google.

No duh we know they didn't sue (Yet) but originally Sun didn't sue ether.

And no Microsoft didn't sue they just threated companies as in this situation by saying they would not be able to sell Windows or the price for Windows would go way up for those OEMs.

This rule would only apply IF this is a fork of Android which the company said it isn't. Just the same as Google says their implementation of Java is not a fork of Oracles Java.
