It may not be a bad decision, but it is not financially fruitful for Google if it was planning to extort money from its baddies Microsoft, Apple and others.
it could get $4Billions on H.264 and other patents used in Xbox etc., but courts decided $1.7Millions while Microsoft originally said it would pay $1.2Million. Now who is winning?
- 80% of Android OEMs are paying.
- Motorola (Google) is caught by courts that it is using Microsoft’spatents without paying.
- Microsoft is paying little to Google/Motorola.
- Now with this Apple may go to courts again and make sure they pay nominal to Motorola/Google.
Good Luck Simmons.
