Android-Smartphones von Motorola: Microsoft klagt wegen neun Patentverletzungen

Microsoft hat Motorola wegen neun Patentverletzungen durch Android-Smartphones verklagt. Dabei geht es um "die Synchronisation von Emails, Kalendern und Kontakten, das Koordinieren von Meetings und darum, wie in Apps Signalstärke und Akkukapazität angezeigt werden". Wir erinnern uns, auch Apple hatte eine Patenklage im Bereich Android gegen HTC eingereicht. Ob diese neue Klage nun in einem Lizenzabkommen enden wird, wie es zwischen HTC und Microsoft im Bereich Android bereits geschehen ist? Microsofts knappe Presseerklärung findet ihr nach dem Break.

Microsoft Files Patent Infringement Action Against Motorola

REDMOND, Wash. – Oct. 1, 2010 – Microsoft Corp. today filed a patent infringement action against Motorola, Inc. and issued the following statement from Horacio Gutierrez, corporate vice president and deputy general counsel of Intellectual Property and Licensing:
