Ok Apple its Motorola’s turn to do the suing. Motorola is going after Apple with a lawsuit over patent infringement. The lawsuit has already started in German courts and is already costing Apple 2.7 billion dollars in collateral damages. Motorola claims that Apple’s iCloud is infringing on some of its patents, primarily with email and data syncing to its iOS devices.
Apple has however stated that the 2.7 billion dollars that they are losing in collateral damages will be in a countersuit if Motorola fails. This would only happen if Motorola loses and goes to appeals. There is already word that the German Judge on the case is leaning towards Motorola so lets all keep our fingers crossed that this is a win for Android.
While I am pulling for Motorola here I do wish the lawsuits would stop and innovation would begin again. We aren’t getting anywhere with all the bickering between powerhouses.
