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!

This bickering is not about the courtroom, it's about the laws. The lawsuits are just examples to be exaggerated.
Don't forget that laws are mostly created by a small number of people. Even the US constitution was created by a few activists...


Not sure what point you're trying to make. The laws guide the courtroom. Nobody is going to change the laws. Ergo, it's an argument signifying nothing.

It's probably not obvious to you, but Google is on the verge of giving up. This is their switch of tactics - to start forcing legal reform. If you whine loud enough and long enough, the laws will be passed.
