Legal Oh it's on. It's on. They just messed with the wrong... Euh, companies. It seems like both Samsung and HTC are gearing up for war, and in doing so, have pretty much made a deal with what could turn out to be the devil. They've both partnered with Intellectual Ventures, a company which hoards patents only to license them to others - however, the company has no history of litigation.

I think they should be called Intellectual Vultures

Care to elaborate on that? I thought I read this in the item:


It is important to note that the few things it did develop on its own have not been superficial - for instance, they've been awarded with the MIT Technology Review Top 10 Emerging Technologies in 2009 for a safer nuclear reactor design.

Or maybe you think any patent holder is a vulture?
