Infringement of patents: British Telecom attack Google

Google has a new complaint against wiping services for patent infringement. This time it was not made by Apple, but the operator British Telecom. The major British telecoms operator files a complaint against a number of services of Google: Android Market, Maps, Search, and Google + Offers. According to BT, they are violating six of its patents: navigation information, service delivery system or the telecommunications device. Google denies the accusations: “We believe that these accusations are unfounded and we will vigorously defend against them,” said a spokesman for the company. If Android has already incurred the wrath of Apple in several countries, however, are the manufacturers of phones that were targeted (including Samsung and HTC), not Google directly. So it’s a first for British Telecom who does not hesitate to attack head on American society. The challenge remains the same: If Google is found guilty and pay licensing for patents that improperly uses, it may be forced to no longer distribute its operating system for free.
