Motorola asks ITC to ban every Mac, iPad, and most iPhones

LINK

quote:

On the whole, Motorola names seven patents, all of which are allegedly infringed upon by some or all of these iOS devices: the iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and all three generations of the iPad. Presumably, the iPhone 5 would have been included had the complaint been filed a bit later.

According to Motorola, one of the seven patents is infringed upon by every Mac computer, specifically the Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. This patent, filed for in 2001 and issued in 2006, covers a "System for providing continuity between messaging clients and method therefor."


Everyone knows it's not really motorola behind this, it's google. They're hitting back hard, lets see if anything sticks. BTW, Apple is getting everything it deserves in regards to absurd patent claims.

don't be surprised if in the next year or two Apple comes out and tries to make peace with everyone saying shite like, "an open and sharing market is necessary for technology to enhance all of our lives" etc.

Any OT Lawyers want to start up a class action against the USPTO for issuing all these stupid patents in the last decade or so?

re: Motorola asks ITC to ban every Mac, iPad, and most iPhones
It doesn't matter it's all about damage control right now Apple has them by the nads on the Samsung verdict and the whole world knows it . They're going to settle. Just watch and see. Google is trying to amp up the counter offers so they can do some damage control Apple and Google want to settle . This was never about the money for Apple . The money is all chump change to these guys. That's right. we live in a world where Billions can be called chump change when talking the right people. This patent everything you can think of shite is out of control on all sides and everybody knows it. But it's the system in place. A company that doesn't try to patent everything has an incompetent Board of Directors and upper management they should all be fired. Apple is not incompetent.

It's all about making a point. Samsung fricking threw it in Apple face, and Apple said oh yeah suck on this.

It will all be settled within a year. Google calendar it and call me out on it in a year if I'm wrong. But I won't be. Year end next year at worst. Just watch and see.

Samsung on the other hand looks like thieving bandits they are right now. They may drag it on a few more to try to save their dog eating faces.

They got Samsung maybe, but nothing in those rulings points towards Google and Android. Nice try though.

Motorola has been trying to get Apple to start paying royalties on this patent for years, every other manufacturer has already been onboard doing this for years.

Karma

These patent wars are ridiculous with patents being awarded for complete nonsense. They don't help the consumer at all.

Hopefully this will force a rethinking of the cell phone patent wars.

I'm taking an intellectual property class right now.

This shite is hard. Patents originated with mechanical instruments in mind. Our current system is not set up well at all for software and this new information technology stuff.

It's all a work in progress.

Just wait til genetics and bioengineering heat up in the next 10-20 years. It'll really be a shitshow then

I'm sorry if you struggle with the concept of a three week trial and the jury is out for what 22 hours? The largest verdict in history is rendered. Even some cat living in hut in a third world shite hole reading that on his POS dumbed down device that Fandroids love to count and use to cook the numbers and tout as Android world share dominance could figure it out.

But then again I been to Tallahassee and been to that former girl's school campus. It's got nothing on a third world shite hole.

So I can see why you are struggling with this simple concept so much.

I don't think that's right. Some of those patents are indeed a direct shot at Google because they are saying when Samsung did A by doing such and such on their android running device, they are violated Apple 's patent on it. It only doesn't say it's against Google because goggle wasn't named in the lawsuit.

I'm sure of that. Hang on a few. Im busy right now but will be happy to get a link or two.

Google is essentially screwed on those and they know it. Samsung already hired the worlds best lawyers to defend it. They prepped for three years. Spent three weeks and untold millions . No stone was left unturned No Fandroid rantard argument I've heard on here was not argued a million times better. The world's foremost experts were brought in to defend them. They lost in the opening statements. It just took another three weeks for the 22 hour pity play to happen.

It took twenty two hours only cause the jury knew how big a deal this was an worked to get the numbers right.
Abillion here a billion there was big time zeroes to them.
Google has ZERO reason to believe in a rematch with Apple they can possibly do any better. They backed Samsung behind the scenes to the hilt. That's why it's gonna settle on terms favorable to Apple.

It's not about money it's about pride. Apple watched how shameless the dog eaters were going to copy cat . Asked them to settle it all for $250 million and the dog eaters said FSU to Apple .

So Apple nutted up and now the whole world got to see what happens when they do.

Apple 1 Billion -- Dog eaters squat.
