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 really try to get those bans.

Patents DO NOT protect anything. As nuclear weapons DO NOT protect anything.

Its matter of fear from using them, that protect if nobody dares to cross the line.

Apple crossed it, and repeatedly stated that they will cross it in the future.

And from those attacks there is no defense.

Google must lunch its own attacks. They will not be defense, but bid to destroy its enemy before enemy destroy Google. Like good nuclear war, it will not work. Both parties will get damaged.

BUT if Google will get even one ban for even one current Apple product in USA Apple stock shares will go down, and with current prices they will go way down. So next CEO will think through his strategy of using patents.
