Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y The Google-Microsoft patent war of words is continuing. Yesterday, Google (rightfully so, in my book) accused Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle partaking in an organised patent attack against Android, instead of competing on merit, claiming that they bought up Novell's and Nortel's patents solely to attack Android and its device makers. Microsoft struck back, claiming Google was offered to join in on the bids for the Novell patents, but rejected the offer. Google has now responded to this accusation - and to make matters even more confusing, Microsoft responded back. A public shouting match between two powerful parties? Count me in!

Apple is not suing anyone for coping iOS!

Google did not infringed copyright hold by Apple!

Apple sue Google for infringing ideas, Apple have patents for.


Actually Apple is suing Samsung over the "look and feel" of the Galaxy Tab. This I *believe* falls under copyright, not patents. Lets face it, Apple is suing the world just about.
