Motorola Files Complaint Against RIM; Asks ITC to Ban BlackBerry Imports
Well here we ago again, another patent fight against RIM. That makes how many in the last year now? This time it's Motorola alleging that RIM infringed on Motorola's patents in key technology areas, including Wi-Fi access and power management.
Motorola sounds pretty angry about it too. Jonathan Meyer, senior vice president of intellectual property law at Motorola says "Motorola had no choice but to file a complaint with the ITC to halt RIM's continued infringement. Motorola will continue to take all necessary steps to protect its (research) and intellectual property, which are critical to the company's business."
In the complaint filed by Motorola they are asking the ITC to investigate their claims and ban RIM imports. Now the thought of this happening is a scary world for any BlackBerry addict. But we all know the likelihood of that happening is slimmer than a paper clip.
Motorola is also accusing RIM of using "delay tactics" in a lawsuit that is pending in the courts filed in 2008 by each company accusing the other of misappropriating technology.

Oh no, not again! This really su€k$!
Wasn't Motorola the genius tech company that brought us the RAZR that everybody but me had problems with?
More "me too" litigation is the last thing we need clogging up our courts.
These happen so often its hardly worth thinking or talking about. Nothing more than a settlement will even come of this.

You haven't? Well, lucky you - initially I was quite happy with it (in ancient times ) but some day I'd accumulated so much frustration that I cracked it - permanently didn't get calls, the message that I missed them came hrs later, empty battery all the time, even my very first (but non-Moto) cellular is still alive and does a 1000times better job with the identical SIM in...still using it as car emergency backup phone.
