Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

This is right. Sharing knowlegde, data, methods and so on is the way science works. It's also the way culture works. (Metal rock music builds on R&R, which builds on black blues and white folk music, which build on.... etc etc.) The idea that music, or software, or scientific knowlegde are built up from zero by some genius (or some genious company) who works in isolation and then "patents" it, is rather silly.
