  • Google is onto something.

    I think their search and data storage algorithms have become essential for the industry as well. As much as I've tried using other search engines, I keep coming back to Google.

    Those search algorithms are de-facto standards and licensed under FRAND. Google should lead by an example and start offering all of their patents under FRAND.
