Google Buys 1000 Patents from IBM

Google has purchased 1,030 patents from IBM in order to help shore up its defenses against smartphone rivals. The patents, which were purchased earlier this month, cover a range of things, including "fabrication and architecture of memory and microprocessing chips" and a wide swath of computer-related subjects. Terms of the patent acquisition were not disclosed. Google's Android smartphone platform is involved in numerous patent-related lawsuits. With few patents of its own, Google is more vulnerable than its rivals when it comes to intellectual property. Google recently failed to win a trove of 6,000 patents that were auctioned off by Nortel. Instead, Google's competitors Apple and RIM made off with those patents.

Not to discredit Apple, but the common denominator has them calculated as a high equation in these suits. Since their inception into the wireless industry, litigation has skyrocketed. Nokia, Samsung, HTC, Motorola, blackberry etc. Is it really possible these companies didn't have anything of relevance to do with the industry prior to Apple's entrance into i...
