Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. No? OK, Google’s being sued. Shocker, right? This time, a technology firm by the name of Gemalto is filing a lawsuit for patent infringements against Google, HTC, Motorola, Samsung for the use of innovations in Android and Dalvik. This all sounds too familiar. Here are the quotes direct from Gemalto:
“Gemalto’s patented technologies are fundamental to running software, developed in a high level programming language such as Java, on a resource constrained device,” said a Gemalto spokesperson. “Gemalto is recognized as a pioneer and ground-breaking contributor to the JavaCard – one of the devices for which the patented technologies were conceived.”
“This lawsuit is necessary to protect our investment in innovation,” he added. “The technologies we develop and associated intellectual property rights are essential to Gemalto’s future. It is our commitment to our employees, customers, partners, and shareholders to protect those innovations from companies who ignore Gemalto’s intellectual property rights.”
That’s about all there is to take out of the issue, at this point, as Google has yet to respond. (But you should be happy to know we’re trying to reach out for comment, of course.) Why don’t we just create a Google Android lawsuit generator? Fill in the blanks!
“________ has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Google, [hardware partners], for innovations in the Android operating system and the Dalvik Virtual machine. We at ________ have an obligation to protect our assets and intellectual property.”
And the accompanying translation…
“We want monies. You have monies. Give us monies.”
