Motorola taking shots at some Apple patents

Motorola taking shots at some Apple patents
Apple is the target of lawsuits almost as much as they sue companies themselves. Recently, Motorola filed a lawsuit against Apple in regards to patent infringements. Now, Motorola is taking legal actions towards invalidating 11 patents that have been awarded to Apple.

Motorola filed their complaint with the US District Court in Delaware just recently. In their argument, they made notice that some of the patents being disputed are the ones that Apple is suing HTC over. If the court rules that these patents are to become invalid, Apple will no longer have a case against HTC.

Surely Apple will fire back at Motorola, just as they always do. Once again, none of this should affect consumers. Is anybody getting tired of the mobile heavyweights taking legal actions against each other? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

They stand to benefit if iOS loses share and Android gains share, so why not help HTC...

This is just a patent war now, I hope that the U.S. patent office just clears all the patents that these companies hold. Then these companies can't sue each other over such trivial things, especially Apple with their broad patents that can mean almost anything. Apple would patent the proper way to wipe your ass if they could.

I think the better solution is to correctly give out patents for more specific IP instead of awarding them willy nilly as they have done with correct research...
