Motorola wins decision against Microsoft in Germany for at least ...

Oct 5th 2012 at 8:03am by Quentyn Kennemer

Motorola hasn’t exactly fared well against Microsoft in Germany in these patent wars, but it has won at least one decision against the Seattle-based company. German courts ruled that Motorola didn’t infringe on a certain Microsoft patent that we are still trying to identify, and Motorola won’t be faced with any injunction woes for the […]

iPhone 5 vs Android: The Patent Troll Presentation

Sep 12th 2012 at 4:35pm by Quentyn Kennemer

“This is unlike anything we or anyone else in our industry has made before,“ said Tim Cook regarding the iPhone 5 at Apple’s press conference in California today. That’s a bold statement considering the state of the current patent wars, with Apple filing silly lawsuits for things like making similarly shaped phones and having slide-to-unlock […]

If there is anything Google has learnt with the patent wars is to file for everything as soon as an idea starts to be implemented. And the latest patent filing from the Search Giant is looking very promising. The idea behind it is motion-based gestures, in which one can control a device without directly interacting […]

After losing against Motorola, in a permanent injunction, Apple was requested 2.25% of all 3G Apple devices sold in exchange for patent licensing. If Apple’s profit numbers are considered, that percentage amounts to quite a hefty amount of cash. And Cupertino Giant is not commiting to anything until it knows that Motorola is being fair. […]

Trademark Wars: ChaCha, XOOM Taken to the Gauntlet

Feb 24th 2011 at 7:56am by Quentyn Kennemer

It’s nothing new to hear about patent and trademark infringements in the Android market. Whether it be OEMs or developers, someone’s registered patent or trademark is always being infringed upon. Even Google “stole” Android at some point. That’s been settled with some ridiculous amount of money, of course. And now HTC and Motorola find themselves […]

Round Two: HTC Countersues Apple for Infringing on Five Patents

May 12th 2010 at 1:23pm by Kevin Krause

And so the patent wars continue, as HTC today has announced that it will countersue Apple for infringing on five of their patents.

Election Day: Obama or Romney?

Nov 6th 2012 at 12:56pm by Rob Jackson

Everyone seems to have their opinion on election day topics, namely Obama or Romney in 2012, but it isn’t as often we see tech-focused websites weighing in. But over the last few days, that’s exactly what we’ve seen from some of our favorite online publications. Take PandoDaily for example, whose Farhad Manjoo recently published an […]

Microsoft bringing Google to court along with Motorola

Oct 13th 2012 at 7:50pm by Edgar Cervantes

The patent wars have been fierce and even annoying, to a certain point. Lawsuits are coming left and right, but until now Google has been left out of the court rooms. Even though they are the creators of Android, and sometimes the cause for these lawsuits. Microsoft is taking the next big step, though, and […]

Aug 18th 2011 at 10:11am by Quentyn Kennemer

When news broke Monday that Google would be acquiring Motorola Mobility, a rush of glee rushed through my body and I started imagining all the great things that would come from the acquisition. And then I read the press release. Right now, Google’s playing this with the patent angle – Motorola has 17,000 of them […]
