Motorola decides it doesn’t want Apple products banned after all, drops patent complaint

October 2nd, 2012 at 2:04 PM

Google’s (GOOG) acquisition of Motorola was supposed to be about boosting up its patent portfolio against Apple (AAPL) but so far the company has failed to land any major blows against its rival. And now Bloomberg has reported on its Twitter account that Motorola has dropped its latest claim against Apple in front of the United States International Trade Commission. Bloomberg says that despite dropping its claim, Google has “reserved the right to refile claims against [Apple], and said there had been no agreement between the two companies.” The company also “gave no reason for withdrawing the complaint.”

Motorola had filed its claim against Apple this past August by alleging several infringements of Motorola Mobility patents, including patents for “location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/video players.” Motorola had asked the ITC to implement an import ban in the United States against all of Apple’s major products, including the iPhoneiPad and various Mac computers.

FOSS Patents speculates that Motorola may have withdrawn its complaint in front of the ITC because it’s been “having problems with tracking down all of the documents related to some of its patents-in-suit” and that “by the time it filed its complaint, it did not have certified copies of all of the relevant documents (patent documents, prosecution history documents, assignment documents) attached.”
