Microsoft Sues Motorola Over Android Smartphones And Microsoft Patents [pcworld.com]
Microsoft is taking Motorola to court with allegations that its Android smartphones violate a number of Microsoft patents. It is hard to tell if the real target is Motorola, or Android itself, but one thing seems certain--patent suits as a product strategy are getting old, and ultimately it seems that all parties lose in the long run.Horacio Gutierrez, Corporate Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for Microsoft, explains in a blog post, "The Microsoft innovations at issue in this case help make smartphones "smart." Indeed, our patents relate to key features that users have come to expect from every smartphone."

Gutierrez continues, "That Microsoft has important patents in this area should not surprise anyone - we've spent over 30 years developing cutting-edge computer software," concluding with, "Our action today merely seeks to ensure respect for our intellectual property rights infringed by Android devices; and judging by the recent actions by Apple and Oracle, we are not alone in this respect."
