The recent US court cases on electronics / design / software indicate a strong nationalistic bias. (Based on the cases reported on the Reg.):
US company versus US company (e.g., Apple versus Motorola): It's a tie, stop fighting.
US company versus foreign company (e.g., Apple versus Nexus or this case): pay money to US company or stop competing.
Foreign company versus US company: Case dismissed.
Is this real, or is it just my perception filter?
