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 think "major" is a gross exaggeration on your part.

My "major" comes from knowledge of working in the industry for the last 7 years. And yes, it is major.

What are you talking about? Apple has plenty of SEPs that it decidedly does not use in an aggressive manner.

By "playing by the rules" I mean that Apple has been the biggest new player to say no so normal terms, like wide cross-licensing. And cross-licensing is very common in the wireless industry.
