PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Upgrading all those countless Android devices to version 2.2, or Froyo, hasn't exactly been an easy task for many device makers and carriers. Between flat-out denying devices from Froyoness and already having Froyo updates sent out, Motorola has pretty much lost it. Where companies are incompetent, the geeks that roam the 'net seek to provide solace. What do you do, then, as a company? Why, you threaten your loyal customers with legal action, of course.

If I buy a phone... the device is mine right ? well apparently not with Motorola devices.


If you read the artice, you'll see that Motorola is not suing you for your phone usage patterns. They are issuing C&D for a website that illegally distributes their copyrighted software.

Can't they just remove the Copyrighted portion or have the user use their legally acquired backup of said content?

Probably, but I suppose Motorola won't help them do it.
