@sw guy Maybe the beancounters has discovered how much the lawyers costed to companies

Now this begs the question - when the downsizing happens, who goes first?  The engineers or the lawyers?

docdivakar, I would like to hear more about this best kept secret.  Now that Motorola Mobility is being bought by Lenovo, I wonder how much of the IP will move with them.  Google bought MM for their IP and patents.  As an ex-Motorolan, I hope they will continue to exist.

@AZskibum: I agree... duking it out on patents really deviates a company's focus & resources from working on product innovations. I think "Motorola" referred to in this article is really the Motorola Mobility which is now a Google company. I had an opportunity to talk to some one from there recently. Based on what I heard at the event where there were folks from M-Mobility, it seems it is one of the best-kept secrets of Silicon Valley!

Its better to settle on these patent lawsuits. Both these companies are innovators in their areas so patent infringement is quite likely. But with Samsung it would be a different scene. If one think on larger scale some kind of compromise can work out in other patent lawsuits too.

Perhaps this is a sign that the IP lawsuit shenanigans are coming to a close and the focus will shift back to making money the old-fashioned way: by designing, manufacturing innovative products at good margins.
