What happens to prices when Google buys a company?

Recently Google purchased Motorola. Apple was a licensee of Motorola intellectual property — cell phone technology. As a result of the Google combination, “Motorola Mobility was asking Apple to pay 12 times what it had previously been paying to license the technology.”

TWELVE TIMES HIGHER!

That’s what happens.

See Apple, Google back in court over mobile phone patent lawsuit.
