Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

They are just biased towards the patents held in their countries.

No they are not. They are bound by the dumb rules(a lot of it in case law). That is why I dislike case law, it was originally meant to be geographically limited(so that the judges in remote regions, could judge based on the local customs).
