Look at googles response to this. Are they being hypocritical or is it just me with a sense of isnt google+ just a slimy copy of facebook? Innovation? I cant think of anything else google has NOT innovated on - but just copied. Oh - yes - the whole internet. Sorry I forgot :)

Earlier today, Microsoft and Samsung disclosed that they reached a cross-licensing agreement over patents. The key point: it’s a bad blow to the notion that Android is free. Instead, it’s more like “free” with huge Android OEM partners like HTC and now Samsung agreeing to pay Microsoft to use Android. Google must be pissed off.
And they are. Here’s their statement:
“This is the same tactic we’ve seen time and again from Microsoft. Failing to succeed in the smartphone market, they are resorting to legal measures to extort profit from others’ achievements and hinder the pace of innovation. We remain focused on building new technology and supporting Android partners.”
