In href=”http://www.motorola.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Motorola”>Motorola‘s new complaint they claim that Apple is infringing on six additional patents ranging from concealing an external antenna on a cell phone on through to a wireless messaging system. Motorola is mainly focusing on Apple’s iPhone 4S smartphone and iCloud services as being the product and service infringing on their patents. It’s safe to say that href=”http://google.com/” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Google”>Google has given Motorola the green light and their blessing to proceed with this case. Motorola previously sued Apple alleging patent infringement in Florida in 2010 regarding 18 patents covering Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and certain Mac computers. Apple coutersued several weeks later, saying that Motorola multi-touch smartphones use Apple-owned intellectual property.

Mueller said the new lawsuit is “certainly not the same kind of aggressive escalation as a lawsuit over a new set of patents would have been, but this shows that Motorola continues to fight hard.”

Motorola’s suit comes shortly after the International Trade Commission found that Motorola’s smartphones do not violate Apple’s patents.
