Patent Trial Against Motorola Kicks Off This Week
A patent lawsuit filed by Intellectual Ventures against Google's Motorola unit gets under way this week. The lawsuit was first filed in 2011 and alleges that Motorola is violating several patents owned by the patent holding firm. Intellectual Ventures originally hoped to reach a licensing deal with Motorola, but said Motorola was unwilling to meet its terms. The trial relates to three patented technologies, two of which pertain to online updating services, found in Motorola's older Android handsets. Intellectual Ventures has sued a large number of handset companies during the last two years, most of which have settled at this point. The trial between Motorola and Intellectual Ventures is taking place in Delaware.
