Motorola Files Suit To Ban US Import Of iPads, iPhones And Macs

The Samsung vs Apple case may finally be coming to a close, with closing arguments for both sides finishing today (finally!), but Apple is still not quite yet out of the legal arena.

Google's Motorola Mobility today filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Apple, seeking to block the Cupertino-based company from importing the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and "various Apple computers" into the United States.

TechCrunch, who spoke with a Motorola representative, is reporting that the full complaint will be made available on the International Trade Commission's website on Wednesday. Until then, their official statement:

"We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple's unwillingness to work out a licence leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers' innovations."

      busted= just...

    Google trying to muddy the waters while it's facing anti trust charges itself. Funny that these patents were licensed to Apple opponents as FRAND technology only months before Google acquired them. Somebody wants things ALL ways, but won't license stolen IP when offered. Hypocrite much google?

    So first Apple cry foul that Samsung didnt want to licence X patents etc from Apple and instead chose to use them in their Galaxy devices anyway. And now when Motorola wanted Apple to pay for the same thing, they refuse to budge. WTF?

    Meh, Karma is a b!tch hey apple?
