Motorola Looking to Win 2.25% of Apple's iPhone Sales

Court documents reveal that Motorola is seeking 2.25% of Apple's iPhone sales in order to license the standards-essential patents that Motorola holds. That percentage amounts to about $15 per iPhone (unsubsidized iPhone 4S 16GB). Motorola and Apple are amidst a patent battle in German courts, and the document came to light as part of this week's proceedings in those cases. At issues is whether or not Motorola's terms represent a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) offer. Apple argues that the terms are not fair. Motorola has won two decisions against Apple, one in December and one on February 3. The first pertains to smartphone patents, while the second pertains to Apple's iCloud service and email syncing patents.

"Email syncing patents"

Interesting. Has there been ANY Motorola device prior to the iPhone that did email well? Laughing
The issue is no doubt not the concept of syncing, but the precise manner in which the syncing is done...yo can't patent a concept, but you can patent one method to implement that concept provided it is clever and innovative enough....

At any rate...

I know right? Laughing
Payback FTW! Go Motorola, go for the throat! A truly just punishment, a just heaping of crow served on Apple's plate...I have been assuming that Motorola's end game was to force Apple to settle 'we'll drop our iPhone lawsuits as long as you drop you...
Yes, and I bet, once this goes through, both Apple and Google will come to some cross licensee agreement on various patents both warranted and nonsense.

I would like to see more news blogs on new stuff like the Note and other phones being released ...

"Apple argues that the terms are not fair."

Waa, waa, waa. Cry me a river Apple. What comes around goes around. Payback is sweet!
