Yeah, it was the Apple who started the patent wars and stirring up trouble from all sorts of things. Now they face with an army of companies pounding Apple with artillery of patents.

So are you mad at Google for suing Apple or for copying Apple's style in making lawsuits against others?

And if you believe Apple is in the right by seeking to protect it's patents against others then how is it you find Motorola (Google) in the wrong for doing the same?

I find that this is going way out of line, these are just phone companies trying to make money. And everybody wants the bigger dollar.

Apple was always a company that innovated and has amazing ideas, but since steve jobs died, all seem lost. And now they are doing upgrades but not releasing new products. Pretty much dissapointed in Apple by now. Android all the way. #AndroidGangg

To think Apple feel that those are not suppose to be license worthy, they refused. That is the same as Samsung thinking those stupid icons and round corners are stupid enough to be patents too :P

Way to Go Moto..! And these are not stupid patents like square with rounded edge design or swipe to unlock...
The world knows that Motorola introduces the worlds first to introduce Mobile phone. So had they patented the Idea wo wireless phone no one else could have been allowed to produce wireless phones.

When will the patent wars end? When will each mobile phone company stop sueing Apple? When will Apple stop sueing what they believe other companies has copied? Answer: When all of the companies fail to impress or deliver something the consumers want.

From what I gather in this article, and previous articles from various news networks over the last few months, this is a last resort by google/moto. I remember reading near the beginning of the year about Google saying it was entering discussions with Apple about patent licensing and they would not enter into a court situation unless there was no deal made.

Well by the looks of it Apple has refused deal after deal, and Google has no choice. Personally, I say good on Google. Apple has tried to strong arm into a position of power in the smartphone market for the last few years by taking to court anything that is remotely similar to iOS or iPhone design. Now however they have to deal with hardware patent disputes, which are a hell of a lot harder to win when you don't own the concept behind the tech, unlike looks which is all subjective.
