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.

Acacia are patent trolls, who buy patents and go after other companies and schools. However, they have engineers which also write patents as well. Just because a company has made a few contributions to society does not wave the possibility they will act accordingly. However, perhaps this is a way to join all the patents under one umbrella, to prevent all these lawsuits from happening, wonder if Motorola will be next to join.
