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.

Welcome to OSNews, where everyone is a patent law expert.


And this comes from someone who has spent some 20 posts arguing that the lawsuits against android are valid...

I don't argue that they're valid. I argue that they happen. Because they happen, it makes Android legally unsafe.

I'm not a judge, or an expert, but its easy to make an objective observation about the legal shroud that covers Android.

Its more productive than sticking your head in the sand and pretending it doesn't exist.

You may not like software patents, but they exist, and they're a threat to OEMs. Accept it, and deal with it. You not liking it doesn't make it less of a threat.
