Apple and M$, two of the biggest monopolists in IT (personal computing certainly, and branching out), are accusing Motorola of doing what they do… The irony makes me chuckle. M$ and Apple have been suing the world and don’t want to be sued and injuncted in return. Bullies hate it when someone has the nerve to stand up to them. It makes being a bully difficult when the herd stands and fights.
The issue is whether or not it is fair and reasonable for Motorola to charge people suing Motorola an arm and a leg for licensing patents Motorola has promised to be FRAND about to standardization organizations. Being reasonable has two sides to it. You should not expect people you are suing to be reasonable or not discriminatory. If governments properly regulated M$ and Apple, none of this would be necessary but governments seem to see big crimes as just business as usual. Extorting $billions from the world at monopolistic prices is not business as usual.
