    aparently Motorola mobility (now owned by google) are planning a suit against apple though which basicly means google using its nukes and the patents they own are basic to how a phone works "i think" so this could be the monster that is google fimaly rising from her lair. correct me if im wrong please anyone, i just read little bits here and there
    Google will carefully rethink their strategy after this. If they go after apple, apple will use their entire patent portfolio against all of google's products. Needless to say, Google would not risk the loss of any of their core business, or android itself being taken down, when they know they can negotiate a license with apple.

    After the verdict, the legal landscape is very very different.

    I dunno. Google may just decide enough is enough and start slapping Apple around.

    I guess my main beef is that some of this stuff should have never been given a patent in the first place. Software patents are bad for everyone.

    Googles patent arsenal is not strong enough to take on apple directly. The majority of Motorola's patents are SEPs, and are useless for this kind of situation.

    Apple will license multi touch gestures. They've already made that clear. Samsung apparently didn't feel like paying for them, however.
