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.

And I get voted down for calling Android a legal minefield. Riight.


Every tech product is a legal minefiled with the current patent system. Especially if they compete with companies like Apple and Microsoft.

Not exactly, most companies play ball and license the patents they infringe upon if they're deemed valid. Every big player (sans Google) does.
