Legal If you can't compete, litigate. This train of thought has been quite prevalent among major technology companies as of late, most notably by Apple and Microsoft, who both cannot compete with Android on merit, so they have to resort to patent lawsuits and FUD. Both Asustek and Acer have revealed that Microsoft plans to impose royalty fees upon the two Taiwanese hardware makers to prevent them from shipping Android and/or Chrome OS devices.

Microsoft's action are not 'anti-competative' by any legal definition. The laws of the USA are on their side.

You may not like it but it's sort of Orwellian to redefine terms in support of your argument, don't you think?
