Smartphone patent war – a legal tar pit

Florian Müller has a good post on the effects of the smartphone war. A few years ago all the mobile companies began suing each other to gain some darwinistic advantage and be the strongest to survive.
The result of these patent litigations are…nothing. Smartphone sales are up and nobody is stopping anybody. As Florian is stating in his post “Based on where things stand now, more than 90% of 222 smartphone patent infringement assertions by major players against other large organizations have gone nowhere, with 109 assertions (49%) having failed (so far) and 93 assertions (42%) having been dropped”
So basically the war in the trenches is only bleeding money from the big companies and not achieving anything…
