Google is being sued by Buysafe, a secure online transaction provider, which claims that Google maliciously extracted its business information and is now rolling out a technology based on that information.
I want to get a patent for innovation and word it as "the process of making things/processes better or making new things/processes"..... if i couldn't get that one I could always try to patent "patent trolling"

IBM has been trying to patent "patent trolling" for years now and keeps getting rejected, so you will have a fight getting that one.
From my understanding, I do think that Google is at fault.
It's hardly fair competition if your competitor can essentially blacklist you from search results and use its endless cash backing to starve your only business model into non-existence. Add on top of that the blatant and arrogant disregard of your patents by them, since they can keep any court case tied up long enough for you to be first thrown onto the street begging for cash.
google definitely has many monopoly-like attributes; and they are using them to their fullest. don't be dull by believing otherwise.
If it's true that an executive from one of my business partners left to join another company who then mysteriously deployed a competing product using those ideas, then I really feel for this company.
Anyone who doesn't think this kind of thing goes on in the corporate world is extremely naive.
Yes, we're all fed up of hearing about patent suits. But it's important that we remember the patent system is also there to protect and safeguard innovation and ideas from being ripped off - particularly when there is a larger company involved that have the assets and finances to give them an advantage.
