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.

If you want to claim that the "lots of peeps" regarding Nokia's SEP enforcement in the, admittedly, one area where they tried to wield them in non-FRAND fashion (demanding cross-licensing) remotely compares to the current attention Google and Samsung are receiving for their unfair practice... well, you are willfully denying the very clear reality.
