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."

You need the reading comprehension classes:

"for Appleā€™s STANDARD-ESSENTIAL PATENTS..." The patents Motorola is seeking licenses to are not Standard-Essential patents.

No, but Apple still has to offer the license, which they didn't do. It doesn't say that Motorola has to license them, or even want them. It just says that Apple has to make the offer to Motorola. Only Motorola would know if they are using any of Apple's SEPs in any of their products.

There is absolutely zero evidence and Motorola has never even attempted to argue that Apple is denying Motorola the opportunity to license SEPs held by Apple.
