Google makes its move, uses Motorola to file patent lawsuit against Apple

Tech industry observers have long been waiting for Google (GOOG) to get off its behind and defend its battered Android OEMs from Apple (AAPL) and now it seems the company is finally starting to get aggressive. Bloomberg reports that Google’s Motorola unit has filed a complaint against Apple with the International Trade Commission over several alleged infringements of Motorola Mobility patents that include patents for “location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/video players.” Motorola is asking the ITC to implement an import ban in the United States against all of Apple’s major products, including the iPhone, iPad and various Mac computers.
