Microsoft Corp on Friday filed an authorized court case against the cellphone makers Motorola stating that the Smartphone giant, Motorola, has breached on almost nine copyrights in its latest Android based devices.
According to Microsoft, the nine patents which Motorola has seemed to allegedly violate basically involve functions of Smartphones. In the lawsuit, Microsoft has said that these Smartphone functions include the likes of scheduling meeting, synchronizing emails, contacts and calendars, and small notifying applications which indicate the battery power and signal strength.
A spokeswoman of Motorola told the media that they have still not received the copy of the complaint which Microsoft has filed and therefore they will not comment until they receive the complaint officially. Moreover, the spokeswoman also said that Motorola is going to vigorously defend the lawsuit.
Microsoft has lodged its complaint in a Washington district court with the International Trade Commission. Microsoft has said that Motorola has done “Deliberate and Willful” patent Infringement and if the court will not intervene Microsoft is going to bear irrigable loss.
In the lawsuit filed, Microsoft particularly pointed out some of the Motorola Smartphones including the Motorola Charm Smartphone and Motorola Droid 2, plus Microsoft also said in the filing that infringement is not limited to these two devices only but various other devices are also included in it.
Microsoft corporate Vice President Horacio Gutierrez said “Microsoft has a responsibility to its customers, shareholders and partners to safeguard the huge amount of money that all of these factions have invested in the company.” He said that Motorola has to stop the infringement of our patented technologies which they are using in these Smartphones.
Android code seems to be the heart of battle as far as infringements are concerned. A week back, Oracle Corp also sued Google for patent infringement involving in an Android based device.
