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.

As I've said, Apple did want to cross license. That's why their Wisconsin court determination on FRAND was tossed out.

They wanted a broader FRAND cross licensing trial. Again, this ties into the whole "knowing what you're talking about" bit.

You seriously see only the facts you want to see.
