Legal I'm supposed to be asleep right now, but this news kind of hit me like a ton of bricks: Oracle is suing Google over its Android mobile operating system, claiming it infringes on its patented Java technology. Not a good week to be Google, is it?

"How about this one.

(Google for: MS sues HTC )


Is everybody here dyslexic?

Apparently, though even if there was no sueing process, that's because HTC made a deal with MS before any sueing could happen. This is the right way to do it IMO for corporations: to warn possible patent infringing parties and license them instead of waiting and sueing them later.

YOU do it.
We read the story, we did the research already.

HTC licenses patents. MS makes money for every HTC Android handset.

Old news to everyone else but you.

I do what? Finish your sentences or at least quote properly, otherwise it gets annoying to understand. I was citing the PP.
