Legal It looks like Google has a serious lawsuit up its tailpipe. Skyhook Wireless, the company that develops technologies for determining the location of cell phones and similar devices, has filed a patent infringement and a tortious interference lawsuit against the search giant, claiming Google's interference cost Skyhook tens of millions of dollars.

Its not applicable. Simply put, google's location application is a component of its other programs. Google's license requires a vendor to maintain compatibility between googles apps if they are used. Google certainly can require motorola to either not ship a product that violates the license, or force motorola to not include googles apps.

This is well within googles rights.

A consumer can choose to switch this but a vendor cannot ship a product in violation of the license.
