Legal "Google's Motorola Mobility unit said it filed a new patent-infringement case against Apple claiming that features on some Apple devices, including the Siri voice-recognition program, infringe its patents. The complaint at the U.S. International Trade Commission claims infringement of seven Motorola Mobility patents on features including location reminders, e-mail notification and phone/video players, Motorola Mobility said yesterday. The case seeks a ban on U.S. imports of devices including the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers." Can anybody explain to me how this is a new suit when Motorola and Apple have been wasting tax money and court resources for years now?

Google is simply trying to demonstrate how silly all the patent stuff is. There is no way the US is going to ban Apple products no matter how much evidence is again them.

I absolutely believe that if the US court system was fair, Apple would lose the case. Of course that will never happen, but Google's goal here is not to have the products banned. It's simply to increase awareness about a serious problem in this country. What better way to do that then go after the "biggest company is US history".
