Apple Tries to Attack Android Jelly Bean Directly in ApplevSamsungII
Authored by: Anonymous on Wednesday, November 07 2012 @ 02:50 PM EST
Well, each device manufacturer will need to customize their android install,
even if it's just device drivers and so on, so that probably gives Apple all the
opening they need to be difficult.

Anyone can sue anyone else, for anything, anytime...

Actually, the way that current patent law is in the US, a patent holder can sue
the maker of an allegedly infringing software program or device, a bundler who
bundles the allegedly infringing software or device with other products and
resells it, or even the end user who purchases an allegedly infringing product
can be sued for infringement.

"Doesn't Apple need to sue Google directly over Android?"

It's called 'Patent Exhaustion'. If Google had a relevant license then Samsung
can claim they don't need one. Otherwise Apple can sue anybody further down the
chain.

Patent Exhaustion is a defense. It doesn't stop you getting sued in the first
place.
