There have been plenty of legal wranglings between Motorola and Apple, and with Google buying Motorola, that doesn’t show signs of stopping. Now, Google plans to grab 2.25 per cent of every iPhone sale because of the patents it owns through the purchase of Moto.

CNN Money reports that, in a letter sent to IEEE by Google, the search giant intends to ask for the “maximum per-unit royalty of 2.25 per cent” in the EU, that Motorola has tried to demand from Apple in the past.
