    @Blue Ink:

    So all these "I won't sue you if you don't sue me" agreements are illegal? To me it feels like a cartel.

    I believe a cartel would require something like "let's cross-license our patents then use them to kick everybody else out of the market so we can charge ridiculous prices". Good luck proving that, though; it's difficult to distinguish between a company protecting its IP from one consipring with others to distort competition.
