Motorola Smacked with Lawsuit by Intellectual Ventures
Intellectual Ventures today filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Motorola, which it claims is refusing to license Intellectual Venture's technology. "Intellectual Ventures has successfully signed licensing agreements with many of the top handset manufacturers in the world, and has been in discussions with Motorola Mobility for some time. Unfortunately, we have been unable to reach agreement on a license," said a company representative in a statement. The patented technologies in question were not discussed by Intellectual Ventures, which says it only wants to be able to reach a fair licensing deal with Motorola. Motorola is one of many smartphone makers suffering through patent-related litigation from competitors.
These lawsuits are getting old
