Looks Like Microsoft took a swing back at Google.
Microsoft PR Ninja Strikes Back at Google Patent Whine With Email Jujitsu
After Google’s legal head David Drummond let forth with a blog post about how Microsoft and Apple had formed an evil patent cabal against the search giant, the software giant’s PR head Frank Shaw was not having any of it.
In his post, Drummond had claimed the pair ganged up on Google and had not offered to partner over key former Novell patents, in an attempt to stop the growth of its Android mobile operating system.
Except not, according to an email that Shaw posted on Twitter from Google’s legal counsel Kent Walker to Microsoft’s legal head Brad Smith.
Tweeted Shaw: “Free advice for David Drummond – next time check with Kent Walker before you blog. :)”
