Has anyone heard of the lawsuit with Motorola and the possible US ban on the iPhone 5, iPad mini, and new iPod touch?
"According to the complaint (embedded below), Motorola argues that Apple infringed upon seven Motorola patents: 5,883,580, 5,922,047, 6,425,002, 6,983,370, 6,493,673, 7,007,064 and 7,383,983.
I naturally assumed they were "just" Wifi / 3G comm patents, but after looking at them, they're not.
They deal with copying messages between apps, pausing media on one device and restarting it on another, receiving messages based on location, things like that.
One patent looks like it applies to the way Apple did app registration for push notifications.
I hope Apple hasn't opened Pandora's Box with all their software patent lawsuits.
Edit: ah, I see that VirgilB has already posted links to similar analysis. Thanks!
