Google This. This is what we need. These are the kind of steps from which we all benefit. Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

The problem is that they are releasing the said product for free, and the development is funded by income made using their other services where they have a market size advantage (which is an abuse). Doesn't seems to me as fair competition.


So what you're saying is that they behave exactly like how Microsoft and Apple has done for a long time?
Wow, that sure makes Google a lot worse....
