Windows With the release of Windows Phone 7 upon us, the hype machine now goes all the way up to 11. While hype machines are generally relatively harmless and easy to poke a hole through, coordinated FUD campaigns by patent trolls are not. After Apple and Microsoft trolled HTC, and Microsoft now trolling Motorola, the actual FUD campaign against Android is in full swing.

where are you?

seriosuly, this is a matter the antitrust should vigilate upon

they are doing nothing, just like they did in the 30 years Microsoft exterminated the free market in the IT sector

we pay gazzillions of taxes for what? for the enjoinment of multinational corporations?

I think I read that 47% of your taxes goes to paying rates of your loans? That sounds like an awful lot though.

I would like to remove this comment, that can't be right? Must have been some part of the taxes or a comparision or something.

Don't be stupid. Microsoft is bringing a question to court, so you want to bring them to court to stop them? If the case has no merit it will get thrown out. There is no antitrust problems here, and Microsoft is a minority player in this industry so it wouldn't apply either way.

Agree. Countersuing may offer some tactical advantage when you're dealing with a smaller plaintiff -- since they will have to spend money to protect themselves against counterclaims -- but ultimately, it's a weak to completely ineffective strategy if you have no real defense, to begin with.
