Legal And so, the idiocy in the mobile industry continues. Motorola has just upped the ante in this already ridiculous spider web of lawsuits by suing the pants off Apple. Eighteen patents are involved, most of which seem to be actual hardware patents, but that doesn't make some of them any less obvious (apparently, you can patent the location of your antenna). Anywho, like Nokia, Motorola claims that Apple is unwilling to license Motorola's patents, and as such, suing was the only option.

Everyone who thinks they can read patent claims should read the above. Its not easy. It takes more than five minutes, but basically you can't just cherry pick a claim out of a patent and think that anything that the claim covers (by itself without the other claims) is automatically infringing.
