iPhone 5 and other Apple devices could get banned
Apple is getting a right kick up the backside by Motorola Mobility after they filed a new patent-infringement case against them claiming that features such as the Siri voice-recognition program on Apple devices infringes its patents. It gets even worse than that if Apple loses out on this one, so much so that the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers could potentially be banned.
Wherever you look online you will always come across an Apple lawsuit, at the moment Apple and Samsung are at loggerheads with each other and now Motorola Mobility have come forward with its own patent infringements, will there be any mercy for these two companies fighting it out?
Out of all the happenings so far between Apple versus’ it will be Motorola Mobility that will become the nemesis, if they win Apple ‘s major devices such as the upcoming iPhone 5 could be banned in the USA, we will all know with the final decision on August 24. Does it stop here? Oh no, because Apple has counter-attacked Motorola Mobility according to Bloomberg. The downside for Apple is that the authorities have made up its minds that Motorola has not crossed any lines of infringement suggesting that two of Apple’s patents were actually invalid.
Motorola Mobility complained to the U.S. International Trade Commission saying that Apple has infringed on seven patents including location reminders, phone/video players and e-mail notifications, this case seeks a ban on U.S. imports on Apple devices such as the iPad, iPhone and Mac computers as said above.
Motorola Mobility said in an e-mailed statement: “We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers’ innovations,”
How do you feel if Apple products were banned in USA? If this does happen then it means the iPhone 5 will be missing in action.
