+ - 37 Android Patent Lawsuits (Infographic)->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "37 lawsuits have been filed against Android in a little more than a year, the latest one of them being a href="http://slashdot.org/story/11/03/21/2014244/Microsoft-Continues-Android-Legal-Assault">Microsoft's lawsuit against Barnes & Noble, Foxconn and Inventec. ReadWriteWeb says 'the number of patent lawsuits related to the Android operating system is unprecented' and shows an infographic that is also available on Twitpic and, as a PDF file, on Scribd. The first two suits were filed in March 2010 by Apple and MobileMedia against HTC. The original source of the chart, the FOSS Patents blog, says that Android's market share is only one factor, other reasons being that Google's patent portfolio 'far too weak for what's undertaken in connection with Android', that Google doesn't do 'inbound licensing' from trolls, and that Google tends to ignore patent issues because Google itself is rarely sued: in most of these cases, Android device makers are under attack."

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
