I've been reading and trying to follow the sh*tstorm surrounding Android right now... there's patent trolling, lawsuits, and it's really making me think twice about the safety of development. I don't want to put an app out that unintentionally violates some patent that someone grabbed to make money off the indie developer. One example that comes to mind is the "Click here to buy full version" is a patented "technology"? Are you effing kidding me?
So, what are you thoughts? Safe? Heading downhill? Same ol' when it comes to technology?
