Microsoft Vs. Motorola
Microsoft Corp. filed a lawsuit against Motorola, saying the smartphone maker had infringed on nine patents in its Android-based devices.
The nine patents that Motorola allegedly violated involve essential smartphone functions, including “synchronizing e-mail, calendars and contacts; scheduling meetings; and notifying applications of changes in signal strength and battery power,” Microsoft said. A Motorola spokeswoman said the company had not yet received a copy of the complaint and therefore would not comment. Motorola profited from “willful and deliberate” patent infringement, Microsoft alleged, saying that it will “continue to suffer irreparable harm” if the court does not intervene.
