Summary: Google bands together with BlackBerry and Red Hat as it continues its offensive to defend itself against patent suits.

Google along with a coalition of tech heavyweights have together penned and submitted their thoughts about patent lawsuits to the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

Submitted in partnership with BlackBerry, Earthlink and Red Hat, the 22-page document attempts to argue that patent-related lawsuits (especially "patent assertion entities," or PAEs) have basically gotten out of hand, to say the least.
