Mobile Patent Suits Around the World
We found this little ‘Patent Chart’ very interesting, as it’s actually the Mobile Patent Suits around the world in the last 12 months, and while this chart may be a little less than 6 months old, it’s still interesting to see that even today these ‘discussions’ about patent property is still going in. And when we say discussion, we really mean most of them are just suing each other. It’s also worth noting, very interestingly, that most of these patents dispute revolve around Google’s Android OS (not all of course, but most) clearly showing that Android is not exactly the ‘free OS’ it is cut out to be. Well at least to those companies that use Android, which is a shame.
The bigger shame of course, if how we can’t all get along and be friends (fat chance in a business world). It’s good to see that there have been a few disputes that have been solved between the companies. One final thing to note is that the most busy company on the chart below seems to be Apple, who’s legal department have clearly been put to their use.
Have a look at the chart below and see for yourselves.
Thanks Luke for the Tip!
