When Patents Attack Android

Google's Chief Legal Officer claims that Apple, Microsoft and others are all ganging up on his company with bogus patent claims. All this coming from the company that just bought 1,000 IBM patents last week. wink

I have worked in the tech sector for over two decades. Microsoft and Apple have always been at each other’s throats, so when they get into bed together you have to start wondering what's going on. Here is what’s happening: More than 550,000 Android devices are activated every day, through a network of 39 manufacturers and 231 carriers. But Android’s success has yielded something else: a hostile, organized campaign against Android by Microsoft, Oracle, Apple and other companies, waged through bogus patents.
