Google has been accusing Samsung of copying Android in many ways including with its own application called Pulse. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission took legal action against Samsung for its alleged mistreatment of Android consumers. The complaint filed by Google says that Samsung is in violation of several Google patent claims including, but not limited to, claims that it violates Android's competition. Google also claims in its legal papers that Samsung's complaint relies upon several incorrect news stories and misstatements of current congressional investigations, again without any knowledge as to why Google Search would pick up the information in the first place.
I believe that the crux of this entire story continues to be whether or not Google can patent what it does, or if it can sue Samsung for patent infringement. Google has made it very clear that they value innovation and the ability to innovate as much as Apple. They have also offered a large sum of money to those whose content is stolen through their search engine results, like the case with Rhapsody and Zune. So, whether or not Google can patent or sues Samsung over this whole "rumspringa" thingy, well, we'll have to wait and see.
There is actually one way to read between the lines in this litigation, and that's the way Google wants it to be. Google has always said that it would support both rumble text search, and they appear to have done so in this case too. So, in other words, if you want to watch a video from YouTube or another website, all you have to do is click on the "Rumble" icon on the bottom right of the browser, and it will replace whatever it is that you are searching for on the search results page. If you're reading this post, you must realize that Samsung is not doing anything that Google doesn't already do - including in their effort to claim patent infringement - except that they are going one step farther by making video content creators to jump through a lot more hoops in their system. Will this new system change the way we use Google, or just make it easier for Google to get more traffic? Only time will tell.
