A Rockstar ate my Google

Written by Nick Farrell



New patent troll in town

Rockstar, which owns thousands of former Nortel patents, has launched a troll war on mobile phone manufacturers. (It's not THAT Rockstar. Ed)

Rockstar, the consortium that bought the Nortel patents for $4.5 billion, outbidding Google for the patents, has sued Samsung Electronics, HTC, Huawei and four other companies for patent infringement. This is not your normal patent troll. Rockstar is owned by Apple, Microsoft, Blackberry, Ericsson and Sony.

Google is accused of infringing seven patents. The patents cover technology that helps match Internet search terms with relevant advertising. If it wins, that will be the core of Google's search business gutted. Rockstar is seeking increased damages against Google, as it claims Google's patent infringement is wilful.
