The Microsoft settlement for the same was interesting:

"Vringo also sued Microsoft over ads in its Bing search engine. Microsoft settled that case in May, agreeing to pay $1 million plus 5 percent of whatever Google ultimately pays."

It's strange agreeing to pay 5% of Google outcome on the same and quite clever the more I consider the pros/cons.

They're arming patent trolls and aiming them at google. This isn't the first one (rockstar).

I don't understand why people keep coming to this conclusion. To me it just sounds like MS ducked faster.
