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?

On one hand "Google doesn't believe in patents" but on the other hand they have decided that the best defense against Apple is attack.
I don't blame them: the current legal/judicial situation is insane, so they have to play by the (current) rules, I just hope that they're also lobbying to change the rules to forbid software patent.
