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.

Not too sure why the LCD price fixing lawsuits are included, makes one company a whole lot more aggressive than they actually are - Nokia ‘lost’ plenty over the years when the screen producers were acting as a cartel.

Nice graphic though, much better than a few i’ve seen around, which were just dots randomally positioned with lines between.
