MS requests that Motorola be prohibited from importing several Android devices

Quote:
Today, in a trial before the International Trade Commission in Washington, the world’s largest software maker, Microsoft, accused Motorola Mobility of infringing on 7 of their patents (thanks in part to Android) and is requesting a halt on imports of several Motorola handsets — namely the Droid 2, Droid X, Cliq XT, Devour, Backflip and Charm.

Microsoft’s corporate vice president and deputy general counsel for litigation David Howard had this to say,
“We have a responsibility to our employees, customers, partners and shareholders to safeguard our intellectual property. Motorola is infringing our patents and we are confident that the ITC will rule in our favor."
More and more, there is no such thing as a free operating system.

I would rephrase that as "more and more, there is no such thing as common sense". This patent thing has gone way over the top.
