Barnes & Noble Files 43 Pages of Prior Art to Microsoft Patents

The legal fire between Barnes & Noble and Microsoft is flaring up even more. B&N has filed a compilation or prior art to Microsoft’s patents. B&N is proving just how easily and quickly Samsung, HTC, and other buckled to Microsoft’s protection racket: we’re talking 43 (!) pages of prior art, drawing from things like old Netscape releases, GNU Emacs, and much more. If B&N can create such a monumental list of prior art, why didn’t Samsung or HTC? Amazing.
