Motorola seeks U.S. import ban on Apple iPhone and Apple iPad with new ITC claim
The patents involved cover location reminder technology, email notification, and phone/video players according to Bloomberg. Motorola Mobility has also included Siri in the suit, alongside the actual Apple devices named. Motorola Mobility also claims that Apple refuses to discuss licensing these patents with them. None of the seven patents involved in the claim is FRAND related, nor are they standards essential patents which tightens the screws on Apple a bit.
This isn't the first time that Motorola Mobility has filed a claim against Apple with the ITC. The first case is due for a final ruling on August 24th, and involved FRAND designated patents. In that case an ITC judge had already ruled back in April, that Apple had infringed on one of four Motorola Mobility patents that were part of the claim. The patent that Apple was ruled to infringe upon is a FRAND designated patent on Wi-Fi technology and the ITC could issue a product ban if it makes a final ruling against Apple based on standards essential patents.
Another patent related case involving the two combatants has been dismissed with prejudice by a judge in Chicago. Late last year, both sides held talks for cross-licensing each others' patents, but the meeting obviously didn't lead to a deal.
