Microsoft Uses Its Patents to Attack Android

Recently Microsoft has sued Barnes & Noble for infringing its patents. B & N is one American bookstores chain who not long ago launched an Android-based digital book reader. According to Microsoft Android it violates certain software patents that are in their possession and ask B & N repair.

The curious thing about the subject is that economic quantity order by licensing their patents is above the price of the mobile operating system Windows 7. What is what is deduced from this? That Microsoft, more than caring for their intellectual property what it wants is that manufacturers will leave Android for your operating system.

That is, at least, what asguran from Barnes & Noble. And it makes enough sense. Microsoft has been out of the market of mobile phones, has not been able to be innovative, its mobile operating system did not emerge when just had alternatives and now It has come too late to the tactile experience.

Personally, I have a position quite confronted the issue of intellectual property, but it is this case cries out to heaven. If at least it was Apple that denounced to Android … but is Microsoft, which has failed to put forward a decent user experience in mobile until Android was already seated in the market. They are not trying to defend its spending on r & d, but take the competitors by size. And they also attack smaller companies like Barnes & Noble, not to Google or Samsung.

Do you think that this strategy can do harm to Android? I sincerely believe that not. It is a desperate strategy. Nokia and Microsoft will sink as they intend to use their lawyers to achieve market share.
