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.

I was hoping for the current FRAND system to crumble to let the patent system explode with lawsuits - which is different from this ruling discouraging companies from participating in FRAND schemes in the future.

Watching you continuously have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to patents is funny, it really is.

Ah, the personal insults, your go-to strategy. I was wondering when you'd bring it out again!
