    Default Now Motorola Android devices banned in the U.S. who's next?



    The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued a ban on imports to the U.S. for certain Android-based Motorola Mobility devices.</p>

    It follows a judges ruling that a number of Motorola mobile devices infringe a Microsoft patent for generating meeting requests and group scheduling from a mobile device. U.S. Patent No. 6,370,566. *Nine patents were listed in the original complaint originally filed * in October 2010.</p>

    The ruling is likely to come into effect in July unless Barak Obama the US president intervenes or Motorola decides to modify its devices.</p>

    Foss Patents writes:</p><blockquote>"In order to continue to sell products in the U.S. market, Motorola Mobility will most likely modify its products by removing the related feature. That is also the way in which HTC reacted to an exclusion order Apple won last year based on one of its patents (and which just caused a delay of two HTC product launch dates). For patent holders defending their intellectual property, it's also a good outcome if their enforcement activites require others to develop workarounds. Patents are, by definition, limited in scope. Non-standard-essential patents can always be worked around in some way, though the term "workaround" is often used as a euphemism for the removal of functionality.
    I believe it won't take too long before Motorola will join many other device makers who have taken a license to Microsoft's many Android-related patents, such as Samsung (the undisputed market leader), HTC, and LG. According to Microsoft, more than 70 percent of all Android smartphones sold in the United States now have a license to its patent portfolio. Motorola is the only Android device maker to be embroiled in litigation with Microsoft at this stage. Microsoft recently settled an Android patent dispute with Barnes & Noble, which also resulted in a license agreement."</blockquote>via

    So i guess Motorola and HTC copy cats to, going by our local expert who claimed Samsung copied, are we in line for more topics like he's Samsung one i wonder.


    ANYWAY, im getting sick of all these lawsuits, they are getting ridiculous, and are actualy hurting the consumer. About time they started innovating and stopped letting lawyers do all the work.

    Well, you need to respect others opinions as it was only that. An opinion. In the article I also didn't saw that the writer claimed that Samsung was the only copying others. Finally, this article proofs that DailyMobile Blog doesn't have any kind or pre-concept in defending some or attacking others. DM posts hot news from the mobile world from whatever brand is about.
