    Another frivolous lawsuit by Apple. Seems like they want to be the only company to be able to sell their products worldwide. They should really focus on more important things.

    ...Apple trying to strangle the competition while still in its infancy. GG Apple never seizes to amaze me.

    Errr did either of you read the article ? This is a counter resulting from Motorola choosing to sue them. Let me quote some important bits neither of you bothered to read before commenting.

    Apple sued Motorola Mobility in a U.S. court on Friday in an attempt to stop Motorola from asserting some patent claims against Apple in Germany, according to the lawsuit.
    Read a little further on and you will see Apple is not so wrong in this case, Media (writers on this forum as well) like to use misleading headlines and short blurbs that tell half truths so people that are too lazy to read the whole piece make their own stories.

    Apple says that as a Qualcomm customer, Apple is a third-party beneficiary of Motorola’s agreement with Qualcomm. Under that agreement, Motorola’s rights under certain patents are exhausted, Apple argues.
    From my understanding, Apple are indirectly saying Sue Qualcomm, not us.


    “Despite owning scores of standards essential patents, Apple has never asserted a standard essential patent in litigation,” it said.
    This is definitely a threat to the market, back off or this might come back and hurt you. Its no secret Apple have been the most agressive at suing their opposition, and the opposition are trying to come back hard... They might have chosen the wrong battle this time, wonder if the Google take over will put a stop to this, or ramp it up.
