"We saw the letter to the ITC from Barnes & Noble, and the slide presentation to the US Department of Justice, attached as Exhibit C to the letter to the ITC, and both have been covered widely in the media. But now I'll show you the other exhibits, Exhibits A, B, D, E and F, so you can get the full picture of what Barnes & Noble is accusing Microsoft of doing. Take a look especially at Exhibit D, where there is a long detailing of the incredibly insignificant patents Microsoft has the nerve to use against Android, claiming control of the entire operating system with what is pretty much a handful of stupid patents no one really needs or which are so trivial that the fees it claims become outrageous. At least that is Barnes & Noble's position. It made my blood boil to read it. As always, if you shouldn't look at patents, don't click to read the rest of the article."
