Summary:
Dozens of exhibitors at Europe's largest gadget confab were in for a surprise this week: Suspecting patent violations, German authorities raided 51 booths, carting off cell phones, navigation devices, and other gear that allegedly infringe on patents. [...] The raid was a response to a rising number of "criminal complaints by the holders of patent rights in the run-up to CeBit," and the patent holders had warned the accused companies in "good time" about their lack of licenses, police said, according to the AP.
