Default Guess who makes a lot of money from Android?

Because it has a formidable legal arm and a lot of patents (dubious IMO) Microsoft has been suing or threatening to sue a lot of companies. Rather than face Microsoft lawyers with billions of dollars to spend in never-ending law suits, most companies have caved and agreed to pay Microsoft royalties. As a result Microsoft has money rolling in on Android sales. It is a glaring example of the irrationality of US patent law. Article here
