Motorola asks ITC to ban BlackBerry imports
It's been a hell of a year for Motorola, but one thing's stayed the same: the company still thinks RIM is ripping off some of its patents. At least that's the sense we're getting from a new complaint Moto's just filed with the International Trade Commission alleging the BlackBerry crew is infringing five patents on "early-stage innovations" that range across WiFi, app management, UI, and power management. As per usual with ITC complaints, Motorola's asking for a ban on RIM imports -- we'd imagine a cross-complaint from RIM barring Motorola imports is coming soon. Also spotted: lawyers gleefully dancing in the streets dressed only in loinclothes made from money.
