Legal "The European Commission has accused Motorola Mobility of abusing its standard-essential patents against Apple in Germany. The Commission has sent a Statement of Objections to the company over a misuse of its GPRS patents, which has seen Motorola pursue injunctions against Apple products instead of properly licensing the technology."

So patents should be respected when it is against companies you don't like, but it is okay to say fuck patents when you happen to think it is bullshit.

Frand or not ... this is a double standard.

Motorola originally said it would license these patents under FRAND terms when they became standard-essential, which Apple was happy to pay for. However, the company pursued an injunction nonetheless.

Sorry Thom you are talking bullshit.
