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.

Nokia sued Apple for SEPs and there was not a single peep.


Not really. There were a lot of peeps. It wasn't until Microsoft stepped in that things got settled. Nokia wanted access to Apple's patents in a cross-licensing deal, but Apple refused.
