This is blatant patent abuse. I dont see this getting much support.

Let's test that hypothesis. How do you feel about Apple's litigation against other companies?

And right on cue....no response from him.

He could at least lie to sound more unbiased about Apple's lawsuits when you asked this. The Apple love must be so embedded he cant even lie...

Considering Apple itself is a U.S. company, sh*t just got real.

I hope Apple is forced to pay serious cash to Moto... or at least be fined seriously for whatever the reason. They are terribly annoying with their patent wars anyway.

I hope they pay nothing, but rather are forced to drop their ridiculous shape and color lawsuits, or face a ban of their own products. Serves them right.

I agree. It can't get dumber. I mean, having a patent for the front and back made of glass? rectangular shape? Black back.. really? Cosmetics shouldn't be awarded patents.

I wonder how this will affect the "new" iPhone or the rumored mini iPad? Will there be a preliminary injunction or will it be tied up for years and give Apple a chance to change some stuff? If Moto can get that injunction Apple could be in a world of hurt. What would be their money maker while they fought this case?

They'd be fine. The US is a big market, but the injunction would not affect them in the rest of the world.

Plus, I'm sure they'd be able to work around whatever patents they'd need to in a brief time, though that's just conjecture at this point, not knowing what the patents involved actually are.
