Lately, I’ve grown to loath posting another patent lawsuit and where, normally, it’s Apple indirectly attacking Google by going after an Android OEM, it’s a rare occurrence when it’s actually the other way around. This time, it’s Motorola going on the offensive once again, filing another lawsuit against Apple for violating one of their patents.
The lawsuit targets the iPhone 4S in particular for allegedly violating 6 Motorola patents (related to mobile technology). But besides the iPhone 4S, Motorola is going after Apple’s iCloud service that was unveiled last year. This isn’t the first time Motorola has gone after Apple having filed a patent lawsuit against the company back in 2010. A Motorola spokesperson said in a statement,
“Today’s action relates to the same patents we are already asserting in Florida against Apple. Motorola Mobility has worked diligently over the years to develop cutting-edge technology and to build an intellectual property portfolio that is respected by the entire industry.”
