After getting caught,, Google likely wants to play patent troll....

Interesting that Google is paying $12.5 billion (which is about $12.5 billion more than Motorola is worth). Remember, they purchased Motorola shortly after losing the Nortel bid (they were invited to bid IN the same group as Microsoft and Apple, mind you.)

Interesting as well, because Google has expressed no interest in FRAND licensing.

My guess is, Google plans to use these to convince Apple, Oracle, and Microsoft to strong-arm them in instances where Google was already guilty of infringement or where they were already collecting a settlement.

Which, of course, is quite hypocritical from Google's earlier public statements.
