Legal Since competing on merit is looked down upon in the computer and software world, companies in this business usually go for the blindfolded chick with the scale and sword. Up until recently, Microsoft didn't go for the whole patent litigation thing, but now that they've tasted some, they want more. They just sued Barnes & Noble, Foxconn, and Inventec for patent infringement because they use Android.

Settle it by making IP court litigation free of charge in the US. If necessary, create a tax to fund that. For the consumer its better that tax than to pay the ms tax.
The reason for all FUD and related economical distortion is due to the cost of legal expenses. Everyone knows it's not the IP law that rules. It's money and bluff. Governing international transactions on that basis, instead of the value of a product, will never be accepted worldwide.
Each country has to do its home work to oblige its companies to play fair.
