Google sees itself as a victim of a broken patent system, and is demanding reform.

Acquisitions of IP from InterDigital, Inc. or Eastman Kodak could help protect Google. The company has $39.1B USD on hand, which it could use to buy patents.
Critics say Google only got to be huge using its patented PageRank (software) algorithm.

Google's legal team insists that patent reform is necessary; but some reformists say it's hard to trust

I wonder if Apple has thought about the large backlash it will have to deal with if it actually wins.
I already un-recommend Apple to friends and family by citing their evil business practices and disdain for user freedom/control of their products, but it's a weak argument for someone who has already been sold on the Apple is cool factor.
BUT...if my argument also includes they personally killed some of the best phones on the market for the sake of bogus patents, then my argument against buying Apple will be much much stronger...AND I will become much more vocal about it.
...In fact part of me wants them to win...
1. I already have an Android phone that I like and likely won't need another for a year or two
2. There might be a business op importing "illegal" Android phones from other countries
And 3. Gives me and a bunch of other folks a reason the REALLY hate Apple...the hacker/ script kiddie community will likely take a new interest in Apple.
