Google-owned Motorola has initiated new legal action against iPhone maker Apple. Motorola on Friday filed a petition with the U.S. International Trade Commission alleging that Apple is violating seven of its patents. Motorola says the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch violate these patents, and it is asking that ITC prevent Apple from importing them into the U.S. "We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple's unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers' innovations," said Motorola in a statement. According to the Wall Street Journal, none of the patents have been deemed standard essential, which must be licensed under fair and reasonable terms. The exact nature of the patents was not made clear by Motorola.
