There are literally no words (at least no family-friendly ones) to describe the insanity that is the ongoing legal war between practically every player in the mobile scene. You can’t lay the blame entirely at Cupertino’s stoop either — Motorola, HTC and Samsung all deserve plenty of our ire as well. The tablet and smartphone industry appears to be trying to sue itself out of existence, and Apple’s filing today against Motorola Mobility in the US District Court of Southern California is just latest in a long line of legal ploys likely to inspire you to slam your head against a wall. The purveyors of all things i has accused Moto of breaching a licensing contract with Qualcomm by hitting Apple with four patent claims in Germany. In fact, the suit filed in San Diego seeks to prevent Motorola from enforcing its claims in Germany. So, Apple wants an American court to essentially strike down a ruling in a foreign country because a contract was breached that it is not a party in. Confused? We won’t lie, we are a little bit too. Check out the source link for a complete copy of the lawsuit.
