    imageApple Countersues Motorola Over Multi-Touch Patent Infringements

    Just when we were beginning to wonder if Apple had no response to Motorola's patent infringement suit against it, Apple has responded in kind by filing two lawsuits against Motorola. The two lawsuits allege a total of six patent infringements by Motorola related to various technologies originally used in the...

      Thanks Apple and Motorola for using consumer dollars to make lawyers rich instead of making better or cheaper products.

      The next lawsuit might be "Phone with a color screen". These patents are getting ridiculous. I think I'll go to the patent office and get a patent for "breathing oxygen". Then I will sue every one of you for breathing. I hope Jobs doesn't see this. I wouldn't want him to get any ideas...

      The patent process for technology needs to be redesigned and a lot more strict on what patents can be issued. As it is now, many different companies can have a patent on the same technology as long as it is worded differently. Then it becomes a battle of money and words. Something like a touchscreen should be available to anyone wanting to make a phone in 2010. With technology, an idea should be very unique in order to receive a patent. Patents are mainly awarded to help someone or a company maintain their competitive advantage for a little while before others copy it. It's BS to get patents on basics that all phones will need.

      You wouldn't be able to patent breathing oxygen because it's a prior art, we're already doing that.

      As for some of the IP patents, they are valid no matter how common sense you may think they are. Take multi-gestures; sure all touch screen phones are using it now but it's nowhere near common just a few years ago.

      No one could have guessed that we'd be using our fingers to control a touchscreen based phone prior to the iphone. There are different types of touchscreen technologies, but apple introduced it in a way that worked well. Keep in mind, these patents weren't awarded AFTER multi touch interfaces were already mass marketed. Apple obtained them BEFORE launching the iphone, meaning it didn't exist in this form before that.
