At this point I think I'm prepared to accept that two companies could agree not to sue for patent infringement without even going through their portfolios to see if there are any current infringements.
That Steve Ballmer has the opinion that there are infringements is neither here nor there unless he comes up with specific examples.
However I would like to know if this is common practice. Can anyone provide other examples of deals like this?
