Legal I think we just witnessed the seed for a whole boatload of new patent lawsuits in the mobile space. The bid for the massive Nortel patent portfolio, has been won not by Google, but by a consortium of companies including Apple, Microsoft, and Research In Motion. Sigh.

If Google made the bulk of their money from selling tangible products wouldn't they employ tactics similar to these companies to protect their income?


That sounds familiar for some reason... Oh right:

When selling something that's tangible is a secondary business that is just there to further your primary business, it's pretty easy to "play fair". If they had everything on the line like the other companies mentioned I can guarantee they would be using all the same methods being employed by those companies to protect their business.


Hi, hasbean/ourcomputerbloke! Created a sock puppet account to evade the ban, eh? I hope you weren't expecting to fool anyone... if you were, then you probably should have waited more than 1 day before creating your sock.
