News pick: Reactions on reddit to Nokia's threat re patents on Google's Vp8
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, March 23 2013 @ 11:31 PM EDT
Nokia is also pursuing a "tethering" patent us 5884190 against
Google & HTC which might fail under prior art. '190's main
claim seems to be that the mobile modem can connect to two
alternative base stations operating in different modes (e.g.
it tries one and if that fails it tries another). I have to
wonder if some ham radio operators hadn't already done this on
AMPRS long before 1995. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMPRNet .

Nokia's threat re patents on Google's Vp8

Seen in the comments:
What are you talking about? It's Moto who sued Microsoft and guess what? It backfired because Google was abusing FRAND patents that need to be licensed under reasonable terms as they are industry standards.
Microsoft did license them. Under FRAND, Microsoft currently pays 2c per Windows copy to license the 2300 patents for H.264 from 29 different companies. That's 0.0008 cents for each patent.
Motorola was originally asking for 2.25% for their 50 H.264 patents. That's 45 cents per patent on a $1000 notebook. In other words Motorola wanted Microsoft to pay more than 5,100,000% the going rate.
This is the closest I've seen to comparative numbers which is what the argument should be about. Do we know any better than this with all the hiding behind Trade Secrets?

Reactions on reddit compared to reality

The Reddit crowd seem to be mainly dissecting a post by our friend at fosspatents on the topic.

Nokia Corporation's Statement about IPR related to RFC 6386 [datatracker.ietf.org]. If anyone knows how to sift some sense out of this list the rest of us will be grateful. The discussion on the 'net as so often seems to be loudest where the drums are emptiest, slashdot, techinvestornews, ...

You've got to wonder whether Nokia has also addressed patent violations with Google or is the Nokia Corporation's Statement about IPR all they got?

Having read through Nokia's U.S. patent claims you could also wonder if Google is doing analysis for either a preemptive claim against Nokia's patents or even something to do with dilution by tarnishment.

The question is which side if either will escalate this first?
