Microsoft has licensed unspecified patents to phone-maker HTC. Is Android under attack?
Published at LXer:
About a year and a half ago, we wrote about "Rockstar Consortium," a shell company set up by Apple and Microsoft (and a few other companies), in which they placed many of the patents they received when they outbid Google to get Nortel's patents.
For more than three years now, Microsoft has held to the line that it has loads of patents that are infringed by Google's Android operating system.
