Motorola hits Apple with patent lawsuit, goes after Siri, location reminders,notifications and more


Google’s Motorola Mobility division has just served Apple with a patent-infringement lawsuit with the International Trade Commission in US. Motorola is accusing Apple of violating several patents that directly relate to location reminders, email notifications, video playback and Siri. According to tech outfit TechCrunch, Motorola claims that almost every single device that Apple sells nowadays (excluding the classic iPod and Nano) infringes on the said patents, and Motorola is looking to bar imports of Apple’s products from entering the US. When Google bought Motorola Mobility, tech pundits summized that the company was doing so because of Motorola’s large patent inventory that they intended to use against their competitors, and it seems that has been the case here.
