@Neo1- This seems to me to be a very unusual suit. I'll be interested to see what the courts have to say about Apple's claim, should it come to that.

How can a licensee sue another licensee for patent infringement? Shouldn't it come under the purview of the patent holder?

hmm it seems like apples new game is patent trolling taking over from Rambus Incorporated perhaps. "Apple launches new legal attack on Samsung phones" Sun Feb 12, 2012 11:37pm GMT http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/02/12/uk-apple-samsung-idUKTRE81B0ZA20120212 "In a suit filed last week in San Jose, Apple said the Galaxy Nexus infringes on patents underlying features customers expect from its products. Those include the ability to unlock phones by sliding an image and to search for information by voice." now i know for a fact, search for information by voice, is very old tech as i was using "IN3 Voice Command for Windows" to start search and speak input for it back in the day...http://svr-www.eng.cam.ac.uk/comp.speech/Section6/Recognition/incube.win.html

Mergers and cross-licensing agreements are not new so why is this case special from a legal point of view? Kris

how do the MPEG-LA (the organization that oversees the H.264 video codec on behalf of patent holders) deal with cases such as this ? don't they contractually mandate that ALL commercial vendors above a set minimum limit (with the option to waive royalty fees below this set minimum at their discretion) separately licence IP directly from the patten pool or an officially licensed reseller? if its the same type of set-up arrangement as an IP patent pool, then the question cold be, did/does Qualcomm hold a valid 3rd party reseller licence from Moto or merely a licence to use the IP in their commercial products, i don't know!

The fight is getting interesting. If Moto & Qualcomm has some cross licensing agreement then no way Moto can assert them against Apple, who is a qualcomm customer. Reminds me of Synopsys Magma litigation which was cross licensed with IBM.

Interesting argument put forward by Apple. Needs to be seen if the court upholds Apple's argument. What are the consequences if the Apple looses this litigation ?
