Motorola files second appeal against dismissal of its ITC claims against Apple
Motorola has put the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on notice that it plans to appeal the ITC's dismissal of a case Motorola had filed against Apple. This is the second time that the wholly owned Google subsidiary is challenging the dismissal of its claims. The ITC threw out three other Motorola patents in the suit back in August.

The court last month ruled that Motorola's last standing patent related to the case, for a proximity sensor, was invalid. U.S. Patent No. 6,246,862 covered a system that prevented a touchscreen from registering accidental touches during a phone call. Motorola argued that the prior art that Apple said quashed the patent was for handsets with buttons, not for the touchscreen devices that Motorola's patent covered.

lol. Motorola's playing the same game Apple's accused of, competing in the court room, but they lose, yet Apple's the only "sleazy" one. Fanboys say the darndest things.

Apple always accuse others of violating patents. While most of his business is infringed patents

If that were true they would have been hammered into the ground with court losses by now, but that hasn't happened.
