Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

All of this could be avoided if Google stepped up to the plate. If they hold that Apple's asserted patents are invalid, then present the proof.

Instead they sit idly by while OEMs take it from Apple.

Useless patents everyone has already licensed. And Motorola, who is under investigation in the US and the EU for abusing FRAND patents.

Big. fucking. deal.

Perhaps because Apple are suing the OEMs and not Google?

And I'm not sure how rounded corner patents are any of Google's business.

This injunction is based off Siri patents and UI patents.
