By now many of you have at least skimmed through Judge James L. Robart’s 207-page order setting RAND royalty terms for an 802.11- and H.264-essential patent license agreement between Motorola and Microsoft.  You may have noticed that there’s no table of contents (despite the opinion’s considerable length) — and who has the time to sift through a couple hundred pages to see what’s important?

That’s why we have done some of the work for you.  From the link below, you can download an annotated PDF copy of Judge Robart’s RAND opinion — in this document, we have annotated and highlighted particularly interesting portions (and also added a navigable bookmark/table of contents).  We hope you find it useful.
