Apple Sues Motorola

Apple has sued Motorola alleging the company’s smartphone lineup infringes on the iPhone maker’s intellectual property. Apple’s lawsuit, which was filed yesterday in U.S. district court in Wisconsin, comes after Motorola sued Apple earlier this month for patent infringement.

The suit was reported earlier by the blog, Patently Apple.

The complaint is the latest development in a long-running series of disputes involving handset makers in the fiercely competitive smartphone business.
In the complaint, Apple alleges that Motorola smartphones including those in its Droid lineup violate three Apple patents. Apple is requesting that a judge award damages and attorney’s fees and that the courts stop Motorola from selling the products.
