Microsoft’s lawsuit against Samsung was unsealed on Friday,
revealing that the software maker believes it is owed $6.9 million
in unpaid interest from last year.
Microsoft sued in August, asking a federal court to rule that its
Nokia purchase didn’t breach the company’s contract with Samsung.
That contract calls for the Korean electronics giant to pay
Redmond a royalty for each Android phone and tablet it makes.
A lot is at stake in the case, as is made clear by the details
unsealed Friday. Microsoft notes in the suit that Samsung paid it
$1 billion last year under the patent agreement.
That’s incredible. In all seriousness, could Microsoft be profiting from Android more than Google is?
