Apple would prefer to resolve its patent-related legal entanglements with Motorola through arbitration than through courtroom trials. According to paperwork filed by Apple this week, the company believes it can come to an agreement with Motorola (which is owned by Google) regarding its use of standard essential patents. "Apple is also interested in resolving its dispute with Motorola completely and agrees that arbitration may be the best vehicle to resolve the parties' dispute," said Apple. Bloomberg reports that the companies have traded several proposals already, and hope to end all the litigation pending between them worldwide. Apple has accused Motorola of abusing its standard essential patents by not offering them FRAND licensing terms. Apple recently settled patent litigation with HTC, which agreed to license Apple's patents for a 10-year period.
