Android patent wars

Found a precedent for the #android v others patent wars – in the pharma industry. I realised it could not be the first time that the patent system has been challenged by technological advances; and they have seen it and come to terms with it regularly before.

It matters because right now Android market share is rising a lot, i- / Apple is rising a little, and RIM is declining. So to try and stop this in its tracks would only cost the consumers, in the end.
