Motorola patent suit against Apple thrown out

Updated

The U.S. International Trade Commission has thrown out the last patent-in-suit remaining in the original complaint against Apple from Google’s Motorola Mobility in Oct. 2010. A Motorola patent for a “sensor controlled user interface for portable communication device” was found invalid. In December, Apple also won a ruling over Motorola, as Apple was found not to violate another patent. Google is currently appealing a decision to throw out three other patents; this new decision can also be appealed. [via FOSS Patents]
