Today Motorola filed a complaint against Research In Motion with the U.S. International Trade Commission. Motorola alleges that RIM is violating five of its patents, which concern Wi-Fi access, application management, user interface and power management. Motorola is seeking a ban against RIM while the complaint is being investigated. It hopes to block RIM from importing any more handsets that violate the patents, as well as cease marketing and selling its existing stock of handsets in the U.S. The company's intellectual property lawyer said in a prepared statement, "In light of RIM's continued unlicensed use of Motorola's patents, RIM's use of delay tactics in our current patent litigation, and RIM's refusal to design out Motorola's proprietary technology, Motorola had no choice but to file a complaint with the ITC to halt RIM's continued infringement. Motorola will continue to take all necessary steps to protect its R&D and intellectual property."
