suing in the mobile space

a cool visual representation of who is suing who:

Mobile lawsuits visualised
A few quick hitters: 

- Nokia is the most active litigator, with 6 companies targeted, compared to 2 incoming writs (from Apple and Qualcomm).
- Microsoft is the latest culprit - suing Motorola over its line of Android-based smartphones, claiming the manufacturer infringes a number of its patents.
Google, intriguingly, only has 1 writ on its doorstep, from Oracle - but that pertains to Android. And so do all the lawsuits from Microsoft.

Oh America...it's sue or be sued.

edit: here is a better representation by "Design Language News"
