Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

agreed. patent troll extortion by MS of android vendors while refusing to publicly cite what BS software patents are being used. I would as MS fired a over heavy first salvo and deserve what they are getting. If MS doesn't want to compete fairly then Google shouldn't feel compelled to support their fringe phone OS.
