Legal "As was widely expected, the Federal Trade Commission announced this morning that it has reached a settlement agreement with Google, bringing the commission's antitrust investigations into the search giant to a close. Two different areas of Google's business were being explored: the way it prioritized search results, and the way that Google had sought injunctions against devices that were thought to have infringed upon standards-essential patents from Motorola." Would have loved to see the FRAND system crumble, though. Let the patent mess explode - to change the system, we need disruption, not appeasement.

Thankfully, what you think does not matter, because it runs contrast to reality.

I don't care about your philosophical views on patents, because they are largely irrelevant to this discussion. Software patents exist, and you must play by the industry rules or face the consequences.
