While Apple is at a legal war with Samsung, Google's Motorola Mobility filed a law suit against Apple with the International Trade Commission, according to a recent report by Bloomberg.com. The company states that Apple has infringed on seven different Motorola patents. The law suit is seeking a ban on imports of iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. This is the second complaint by Motorola against Apple. Additionally, this furthers to drive a wedge between Google, who finalized the acquisition of Motorola in May, and Apple as the two major powerhouses have been at odds throughout the year. Additionally in the suit, Motorola is claiming that Apple's Siri technology infringes on one of their patents. A Motorola representative made the following comments about the law suit, according to Bloomberg: “We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers’ innovations,” This law suit is also a clear indication that Google is serious about battling it out legally with Apple and Android smart phones, as they look to restore Motorola's once proud share of the market.
