Apple Sues Motorola Over Multi-touch; The Empire Strikes Back!
Three weeks ago, Motorola was trying to get a piece of Apple by suing the Cupertino company over no less than 18 alleged patent infringements regarding innovations which are found in Apple’s products and services.
And since it’s said that the best defense is an offense, Apple is suing Motorola back in not one, but two lawsuits over six multi-touch patents which are allegedly found in nine of Motorola’s products, including the Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Cliq/XT, Backflip, Devour A555/i1 and Charm 1. And since all negotiations have failed, Apple is seeking a judgment awarding it “all damages adequate to compensate for Motorola’s infringement, and in no event less than a reasonable royalty for Motorola’s acts of infringement, including all pre-judgment and post-judgment interest at the maximum rate permitted by law” plus “attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in prosecuting this action, together with interest”.
