U.S. Apple v Motorola lawsuit dismissed in its entirety
0. phoneArena 07 Jun 2012, 20:27 posted on
In a remarkable move, Judge Richard Posner has handed down a preliminary ruling dismissing Apple and Motorola's lawsuits against one another with prejudice, claiming neither side has proven sufficient damages to merit and injunction or any sort of damages...

"This is a far bigger loss for Apple than Motorola..."
Sounds good! :)

The ability to assert these patents against Moto ever. One less avenue to a bogus ban.

for Apple their good name ;)
now most of IT readers hate Apple because they are liars, thieves, bribers, .... :

no, this is a loss just for Apple....Motorola was just defending.....so this is a great relief for Google....probably this is the beginning of the end of this iRotten behaviour of Apple and the competition can begun with complete destruction of non innovative and backward Apple iPhone and iPad :)

Seems like the judges in the US have been doing their homework lately:)

Common sense occuring in US courtroom's in the last month or so... I feel TERRABLY off balance...
Can someone check "the force"? How about those exhaust ports? Did Apple forget to pay its normal "under the table" fees? Did they miss the memo about the price hike in "pay-off" fees?
Color me confused at the SANE judges for this past month in some of these case's...
This gives me hope for the Apple V Samsung case's... a very small amount... but nope none-the-less!

What, you mean apple can't prove the harm of android phones featuring "data detectors" when they sold 100+ ios devices? You know, like when Tim Cook says we can't make enough to meet demand???
Say it ain't so!

Apple`s Wile E Coyote moment this. I`d have loved to have seen the expression on Timmy Cook`s face when he heard the news.

Oracle v. Google
Customs releasing the HTC phones
Apple v. Motorola
I'm regaining some faith in the system.

thank god for a judge that wont put up with nonsense.
so, itrolls, now that apple has been slapped down YET AGAIN for excessive court bullying without merit, are any of you ready to see what we've been trying to show you? That apple is rotten fruit that dose not innovate, they only legislate.
Nuthin but a bully thats upset because someone took away its lollipop.

Did you read the article? They said the case was dismissed due to BOTH parties. Your idea of bullying is laughably naive.

"as Motorola's countersuit was merely an attempt to gain leverage to prevent Apple from shutting them out of the U.S."
Thats from the article.....

motorola was countersuing to get leverage in the lawsuit. i do believe that was even mentioned in the article. they would not have sued in the first place had apple not bullied them in the court. get a grip.

"apple not bullied them in the court" can you prove this.. thanks for your troll opinion.. remix.. but even the writer of the articles disagrees with your nonsense

" as Motorola's countersuit was merely an attempt to gain leverage to prevent Apple from shutting them out of the U.S. "
Its something called reading comprehension. try it.

I don't think it's fair to say Apple doesn't innovate - while much of what they do is taking existing ideas and polishing them to the nth degree, the way they can simplify computing experiences and make them connect with users is certainly a form of innovation.
On the other hand, they certainly don't innovate as much (or in as much of a vacuum) as their diehard fans seem to believe. And I have to agree that they have been little short of a bully when it comes to litigation.

Exactly, Apple has never come up with an original idea. They steal from others, polish the idea, make it user friendly then patent it. Apple blatantly stole the mouse from Xerox and they were able to get away with it because Xerox didn't think it was important enough to patent.

Umm Apple purchased the rights to the Xerox technology. Way to ignore facts.

Did you miss the part where Xerox got 1 million shares for the technology?
36. mas11 (Posts: 1034; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
"So Jobs proposed a deal: he would allow Xerox to buy a hundred thousand shares of his company for a million dollars—its highly anticipated I.P.O. was just a year away—if PARC would “open its kimono.
First of all it's only 100,000 shares which Xerox PAID Apple $1 million for the shares.
Second all he got from Xerox was a tour.
Third read the article carefully.

If you read more than one article and knew the history Apple payed for the technology. Nothing was stolen.
42. mas11 (Posts: 1034; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
But seriously do you have an article from a source as reliable as The New Yorker that says otherwise? If not then I see no reason to believe that you statement is factual.

Apple just stole HTC's design and put it on their iPhone 5. according to the taco that won't stay with food, its not stolen.
48. tedkord (Posts: 11978; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
First, Xerox got 100,000 shares, not a million. Next, the were paid for the tour, not to license any tech. Jobs stole, as he always admitted.

And you think Android is innovation? So explain to me why Samsung had to copy Apple over and over?
