Virtruvian, 17 May 2014Well, it seems that the judges and jury's decision didn't view them as "patent trolls&quo... moreThe people that heard the case gave Apple about the same amount of money that Apple had to pay the law firm they hired. Then they did interviews saying that Apple should sue Google and not Samsung if Apple has an issue with patents related to Android OS. So, I guess you're the one who knows more than the jury who heard the case.
This will be an attempt by Apple to get Google on it's side when it goes against Samsung.
It will be hard for Apple to stop the lawsuits. It will show a sign of weakness especially to consumers. If they stop suing, others will sue them back. It's either two parties agree to stop the lawsuit or they continue to sue each other.
Apple back off because they knew that they will not be able to fight against search giant.......
niker, 17 May 2014Patent troll apple. My house has rounded edges come and sue meWell, it seems that the judges and jury's decision didn't view them as "patent trolls", (what does that even mean?) & decided that Samsung ripped them off.
I guess you know more than the people who actually heard the case though, right?
The jealousy of Apple here is actually a little sad.
Those patents were worth the 10 billion not the name Motorola. Google didn't sell moto patents to lenovo...
This was probably a condition for Lenovo to buy Motorola. Indeed, the Motorola acquisition looks like an increasingly expensive mistake every day. From $12.5 billion, to $2.9 billion, to a pile of standards-essential patents that Google can't litigate with.
