After Apple, Oracle, Microsoft, and eBay, British Telecommunications plc (commonly referred to as "British Telecom" or simply "BT") has just become the fifth large publicly-traded company to bring patent infringement litigation against Android.

  1. Actually when reading the details it struck me that issue is not so much infringement but the issuance of such generic patents in the first place. I mean in many respects is its tantamount to issuing a patent on walking by humans and then suing every ambulatory person on earth.
