James McArdle Amazon (kind of like Google) has some pretty cool advantages when it comes to the mobile market by already existing in a whole bunch of other industries (online goods and services). If they can acquire the IP necessary to play with the big boys in the mobile market, they could be well positioned to leverage those strengths and be a key player going forward.

Ray Van Dyke You gloss over patent law principles and assume much. Where a company takes another company's patented technology and is sued, then if that taking is shown, if that taking is egregious, and if the judge/jury thinks an example should be made, then the judge/jury MAY award enhanced damages. If the "taking" is accidental, then enhanced damages are normally not awarded.

Ray Van Dyke Software patents are very important to many American companies. The reason we have controversy on software patents is these are fairly new. Plastics, sewing and other technologies that were cutting edge years ago have similar controversies. The patent system is rigorous and questionable patents can be invalidated either in court or at the Patent Office.
