Judge cuts 13 of Motorola Mobility's patent claims against Microsoft
not well defined.
Ironically, Google had purchased Motorola for its patent portfolio, mostly to help Google defend Android in court. In this legal battle, where Motorola was the instigator, it's patents were found to be wanting. Microsoft had been accused of using the patents on its Xbox and Windows Phone devices.

Only the big guns can sue and get away with BS victories.

Microsoft has been a big bully to the open source for years. Android is just an extension of this bulls**t. With Google actively backing Android and the public buying in on the handset. Balance of powers has been archived.
Google please continue to pursue a path of innovation.

Did it ever occur to you that big business is big business? Google isn't any less overbearing or "evil" than Microsoft, despite their corporate slogan...

You do realize that Android is not as open as Google leads to you to believe it is. Google operates and controls Android almost exactly like how Microsoft operates and controls Windows.

I often wonder, if Apple didn't start this patent war in an attempt to destroy Android out of sheer childishness. Would this patent war happened at all?
