Google Files EU Patent Complaint Against Microsoft, Nokia

November 29, 2012

Its a war against big companies regarding patent use and violation.

Google filed a complaint with the European Commission, accusing Nokia and Microsoft of mobile patent abuse.

"Nokia and Microsoft are colluding to raise the costs of mobile devices for consumers, creating patent trolls that side-step promises both companies have made," a Google spokesman said in a statement. "They should be held accountable, and we hope our complaint spurs others to look into these practices."

In a statement, Microsoft called the complaint a desperate move.

"Google is complaining about patents when it won't respond to growing concerns by regulators, elected officials and judges about its abuse of standard-essential patents, and it is complaining about antitrust in the smartphone industry when it controls more than 95 percent of mobile search and advertising," Microsoft said.
