Google has announced
that it is bidding for Nortel's considerable pile of software patents.
"If successful, we hope this portfolio will not only create a
disincentive for others to sue Google, but also help us, our partners and
the open source community—which is integrally involved in projects like
Android and Chrome—continue to innovate. In the absence of meaningful
reform, we believe it's the best long-term solution for Google, our users
and our partners.
