A U.S. appeals court has revived a patent-related lawsuit between Apple and Motorola Mobility. The case was summarily dismissed by the presiding judge in 2012 due to what he called a lack of evidence proving damages. The court of appeals revived an Apple complaint against Motorola and a Motorola complaint against Apple. Apple alleges that Motorola is violating four of its patents, while Motorola says Apple is violating one of its patents. The Motorola patent at issue is considered standard essential, which means it is required in order for phones to work and must be licensed at fair and reasonable rates. It's unclear how the cases will now proceed. Smartphone companies often battle one another in court over patents and both companies have other cases pending with rivals.
