Android isn't entirely original since it borrowed ideas from Linux and Java.

I would hope it borrowed some ideas from Linux, since it is Linux based... And what is your argument about iOS getting more and more like Android every year?

Does that include companies that infringe on LTE patents?

Every other android manufacturer besides Motorola licensed the technology? Pretty bad signal to send from Google, Motorola's owner.

I'm getting sick of these patent lawsuits... Everyone needs to quit trolling and just out-innovate the other.. Only then can the customer win.

Microsoft owns a lot patents. Microsoft will most likely end up licensing the stuff out to Google.

Good for Motorola, because they wanted to banned the Xbox 360. Which was not mentioned in this article.

But wasn't that in response of Microsoft's attempt to sue every Android manufacture? I thought this was preemptive strike to defend against the lawsuit that was coming.

From what I read Motorola was Advised to try and ban the Xbox 360, not actually tried to.

Oh well, if I was Google I would let Motorola be a testing ground company any ways, because they brought the company for the patents (to force others to pay a fee).

Google Ban the XBox 360 and Xbox 720..

Microsoft will lose the Gaming Market to Sony and PS3..which will hurt them more :)
