I haven't reported much on the "Smartphone Patent Wars" over the last couple years, not because it isn't an important and newsworthy development in international trade but instead simply because patent/trade law is highly arcane (yes, even more arcane than trade remedies) and there are so many different disputes that it's really, really difficult to keep track of the issue.
NEW YORK: Microsoft Corp and Google Inc have agreed to bury all patent infringement litigation against each other, the companies announced on Wednesday, settling 18 cases in the United States and Germany.
