Google (GOOG) is considering whether to settle with the FTC over allegations that the company improperly refused to grant licenses for standards-essential mobile-phone patents to its rivals and then tried to gain court injunctions to stop those competitors from selling their devices, the WSJ reports.

    How come there is no coverage of the ongoing GOOG vs VRNG trial? Very strange! And most relevant to other GOOG news.

    $12.5B cash paid for Motorola.... poof!

     

    Larry Page, Google's general counsel, and Google's board didn't know what "standards essential patents" and FRAND meant, I guess.

     

    Pretty big FAIL.
