View Thread: Microsoft v. Motorola

    I was under the impression patent holding is similar to a game of MAD between belligerents: organisations amass large numbers of patents and swear to only use them defensively.

    Yet here we are, seeing these companies go on the offensive.

    Surely if Microsoft was doing so fantastically well in the market they would not need to stoop to that level. Otherwise I'm terrified of things like this torpedoing whatever my favourite startup-of-the-month is.
