M$ and “friends” are unleashing the Nortel patents against Google several ways. A recent barrage in court seeks to undermine Google’s whole business. Expect it to annoy the world for a decade. On of “The patents describe "an advertisement machine which provides advertisements to a user searching for desired information within a data network."”
Where’s GROKLAW when you need it? I hope Pamela comes out of retirement proclaiming the cause justifies the risks. Let’s hope the Obama-regime and USPTO and US Congress and the Supremes get their act together and chuck these attempts to patent common sense. I would bet Google is not going to allow M$ to tax their business out of existence.
