British Telecom sues Google over six US patents
Google broke all sorts of records with its Android operating system, but its rapid growth is coming at a pretty high price. There's already a lengthy list of companies that want a piece of the search giant's healthy income and we just heard there's a new addition to it.
British Telecommunications plc (more commonly known as British Telecom) has filed a lawsuit with the Delaware US District Court, claiming that Google is infringing six of its patents with its services and the Android platform.
