I think it was just Motorola when that started, but regardless; even if they're insisting on some ridiculous value to their patents or something, at least they're not making people sign an NDA to have a look at what they're being threatened with. I'm still amazed that that sort of thing is legal.

My understanding is that it's just a court decision on the F part of FRAND, but I haven't followed it closely.

The developers may want to have a word with the legal/patent department if they're looking for goodwill from the developer community at large. What Microsoft is doing with the Android patents is up there with SCO. They also teamed up with Appple as 'Rockstar' for some of the worst patent abuse around, and lobbied against the current patent reforms. It's going to be a big job.
