Apple's 'bogus' patents will 'strangle' Android: Google

Apple's 'bogus' patents will 'strangle' Android: Google:
Google's chief legal officer has launched a blistering attack on competitors, including Apple, for attempting to stifle innovation by using 'bogus patents' to target Google's Android partners including Samsung.

David Drummond, who is also Google's senior vice-president, wrote in an explosive blog post that the patent wars were pushing up the prices of Android smartphones and tablets. This was part of a 'hostile, organised campaign' being waged by Apple, Microsoft and others to 'strangle' Android, which Google provides free of charge.
