Google Says Some Apple Inventions Are So Great They Ought to Be Shared

An anonymous reader writes "In attempting to fend off Apple’s suit against Motorola Mobility and advancing its own patent litigation against Apple, Google, which is facing a lot of regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and abroad over what some allege is abuse of standard essential patents, has been arguing that proprietary non-standardized technologies that become ubiquitous due to their popularity with consumers should be considered de facto standards."

Maybe all software patents should be FRAND (1)

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.
