Motorola Sues Apple for Patent Infringement
According to Motorola Mobility, Apple Inc. copied their idea when it comes to wireless communication technology. Can the guys of Cupertino prove it otherwise, and will the infringement issue be resolved?
Motorola Mobility announced a lawsuit against Apple Inc. yesterday, accusing that the Cupertino-based company’s iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and several Mac computers infringed almost 18 Motorola Patent. According to the accusation:
The Motorola patents include wireless communication technologies, such as WCDMA (3G), GPRS, 802.11 and antenna design, and key smartphone technologies including wireless email, proximity sensing, software application management, location-based services and multi-device synchronization.
Motorola is looking for International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban Apple Inc. from importing the said equipments. According to Motorola’s Corporate Vice President on Intellectual Property, Kirk Daily, Apple refused to take a license after they engaged in a lengthy negotiation. With Motorola innovating and patenting the whole cycle of their telecommunications industry, the company has no choice but to file a complaint in order to prevent Apple in its continuous infringement.View Article Source »
