Motorola vs. Apple

While everyone was distracted by the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit, Motorola has been working on getting the iPhone and iPad banned in the USA due to patent infringements that Motorola claims they own. Chances are good this won't happen but you never know. TheStar has all the details.

Apple Inc. is counting on the popularity of its devices and political pressure to thwart efforts by Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility to block imports of the iPhone and iPad, two of the best-selling electronic devices in the U.S.

The U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington is scheduled to announce today whether iPhones and other Apple devices infringe Motorola Mobility patents and, if so, whether it will stop them from being imported into the U.S. from Asia.
