For every Android phone it sells, HTC has agreed to pay $5 to Microsoft over intellectual patent infringement. Although it is not clear on the area of infringement, those close to the company indicate that the infringement broadly applies in areas ranging from the user interface to the underlying operating system. HTC also makes Windows phones but apparenty thats irrelevant.
So there you go, Microsoft has found its way into making some $$ from Android.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 OS obviously is far less superior than Android which is why they’re trying to make some $$ off Android 🙂
It seems like everyone is suing each other these days. Apple filed a suit in April claiming that Samsung stole the “look and feel” of the iPhone and iPad.
Samsung later in the month filed a suit against Apple claiming that it infringed on 10 patents. Namely, the ability to use the web while on the phone.
In the end, Apple is still Samsung’s number two customer as Samsung provides the processor chips for the iPhones. Come on people, competition is good for the market!
