The writer for FOSS Patents is a paid consultant of Oracle and Microsoft. His anti-Google stance should be taken with a grain of salt.

Forget.....apple and microsoft just want to destroy the best mobile open source OS wirh ridiculous patents.....so Google can not defeat according to you?
Morality of MS or Apple is zero ground....;)
Google does good for the mankind: cars for blinds, translator, perfect maps, ... for us......without Google we are still 10 years behind just with MS and Apple ;)
And this "open source" behavior is not good just for those who keep the power, because The Google is a true democracy

I'm not an expert or something. But since 2yrs i've been reading this.
Microsoft was already paying Motorola license fees on H.264. The thing was Motorola was asking 3billions license fees per year, which sound ridiculously huge. So Microsoft decided to take Moto to court for unfair licensing fees. Flash forward to now, Microsoft went to Motorola for Android licensing fees, Motorola decided to not pay and again continue this same matter to court. Adding Xbox 360 wifi adapter technology infringement.
Right now Microsoft is asking for fair licensing fees.

seriously all these companies need to stop wasting money in courts
