In what is becoming common practice in this industry, Google’s Motorola Mobility unit has filed a new lawsuit against Apple with claims of patent infringement within features in several of Apple devices. The most notable would more than likely be Siri. Bloomberg reports, “The complaint at the U.S. International Trade Commission claims infringement of seven Motorola Mobility patents on features including location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/video players, Motorola Mobility said yesterday. The case seeks a ban on U.S. imports of devices including the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers.”
Motorola Mobility later stated in an email that “We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers’ innovations.”
This marks the company’s second suit against Apple, who themselves have previously filed a suit against Motorola/Google and the use of Android.
One question to note is whether or not this will affect the iPhone 5’s announcement and launch.
