Apple sues Motorola over Multi-Touch

After Motorola recently sued Apple over eighteen infringed-upon patents, Apple has delivered a serious counter-punch in the form of two lawsuits over six multi-touch patents which Motorola is infringing upon in nine different handsets relating to Multi-Touch.




Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Cliq, Cliq XT, BackFlip, Devour A555, Devour i1, and Charm 1 have been named in the list of devices which infringe Apple’s patents.

So what does Apple want out of the lawsuit? A judgment that recognizes that Motorola infringed Apple’s patents, A judgment ruling that Motorola can’t rip off Apple anymore, compensation for damages from Motorola, royalties, and of course payment for the lawsuit (attorneys etc.)

This is after Apple sued HTC / Nokia, HTC counter-sued, then Microsoft sued Motorola, then Motorola sued Apple and now Apple has counter sued Motorola.
