Android Central reported on Samsung refusing to pay Android royalties to Microsoft because the latter was a direct hardware competitor.

We reported a while about Microsoft’s action against Samsung.

Samsung is now stating that since Microsoft owns Nokia’s devices unit, sharing sensitive data with the company would result in a breach of US antitrust laws.

If Samsung is so adamant about not breaching antitrust laws, perhaps Samsung should stop using Android. That way it won’t have to pay licensing fees and won’t invite charges of collusion.
