Nokia

Nokia had been a long-standing giant and a patents-rich company that was hijacked by Microsoft, just like Yahoo (see Microsoft Hijack of Yahoo).

In the 21s century Nokia was lobbying for software patents in Europe. As Symbian declined Nokia turned to Linux and then it sued Apple with patents. After Apple had sued Android Nokia welcomed a Microsoft mole into its ranks and then the company collapsed rapidly, brought in more Microsoft moles (former colleagues of the CEO), all the Linux efforts were called off, staff fired accordingly, and Nokia's patents then passed to proxies such as MOSAID, with Microsoft's explicit intervention. It did not take long for this to harm Android, so Google filed antitrust complaints. Here are some posts sorted chronologically.
