How does Google best protect Android from legal threats?

Hello Friends,

The way I see it, the driving force that led Google to offer $12.5 billion for Motorola Mobility (MMI) -- a 60% premium -- was a combination of serious threats that MMI made to Google. Those threats were perfectly legitimate and credible because the underlying business logic was reasonable and compelling, but the bottom line is that if Google had not offered to pay the price MMI demanded, there would have been four very near-term consequences that would have resulted in a disaster of catastrophic proportions for Android. Three of the four threats were also made in public.

Thanks and Regards,
