British Telecom has filed a lawsuit against Google alleging that its Android mobile operating system, Google+ social network, Google Music, and various other services infringe on six patents owned by BT. BT is seeking triple damages and an injunction against Google for what it calls willful and deliberate infringement. "BT brings this action to recover the just compensation it is owed and to prevent Google from continuing to benefit from BT's inventions without authorization," said BT in the lawsuit, which was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on December 15. The six patents in question cover: a service provision system for communications network; a navigation information system; a telecommunications apparatus and method; a communications node for providing network based information service; an information system; and a storage and retrieval of location based information in a distributed network of data storage devices.
