    Apple Fights Back With Motorola... New Lawsuit


    Do you remember when Motorola went against Apple in a lawsuit just a few weeks ago? Well Apple is firing back with a lawsuit in a Wisconsin court and it takes aim at the Multi-touch features Motorola devices have. This lawsuit battle is about to get really hot really quick, because Motorola has a pretty long list of lawsuit against them and they want a lot back from Motorola. The Motorola DROID, DROID 2, DROID X, CLIQ, CLIQ XT, BackFlip, Devour, Devour i5, and the Charm 1 are the reason of this lawsuit and it is sort of funny since those are just about ever Android device Motorola has had so far.

    Now here is the list of lawsuits:

    One: Apple, Inc patent titled: Ellipse Fitting for Multi-Touch Surfaces: Patent Abstract: Apparatus and methods are disclosed for simultaneously tracking multiple finger and palm contacts as hands approach, touch, and slide across a proximity-sensing, multi-touch surface. Identification and classification of intuitive hand configurations and motions enables unprecedented integration of typing, resting, pointing, scrolling, 3D manipulation, and handwriting into a versatile, ergonomic computer input device.

    Two: Apple, Inc patent titled: Multipoint Touchscreen: Patent Abstract: A touch panel having a transparent capacitive sensing medium configured to detect multiple touches or near touches that occur at the same time and at distinct locations in the plane of the touch panel and to produce distinct signals representative of the location of the touches on the plane of the touch panel for each of the multiple touches is disclosed.

    Three: Taligent, Inc patent titled: Object-Oriented System Locator System: Patent Abstract: A method and system for adding system components (documents, tools, fonts, libraries, etc.) to a computer system without running an installation program. A location framework is employed to locate system components whose properties match those specified in search criteria. The framework receives notification from the system when system components whose properties match the search criteria are added to or removed from the system.

    Four: Apple, Inc, patent titled: Touch Screen Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Determining Commands by Applying Heuristics: Apple’s invention generally relates to electronic devices with touch screen displays, and more particularly, to electronic devices that apply heuristics to detected user gestures on a touch screen display to determine commands.

    Five: Apple Computer, Inc. patent titled: Method and Apparatus for Displaying and Accessing Control and Status Information in a Computer System: Apple’s invention generally relates to the field of computer systems; particularly, the present invention relates to displaying a status and control function bar or window to enable access of user selected indicia to a computer system user.

    Six: Apple Computer, Inc. patent titled: Support for Custom User-Interaction Elements in a Graphical, Event-Driven Computer System: Apple’s invention relates to graphical, event-driven computer systems, more particularly to custom interactive user-interaction elements in a computer system having a window-based graphical user interface.
    This battle is getting hot and heavy with Motorola being sued by Apple and Microsoft while they are just suing Apple back. I really hope with all this money they are making from the Droid's they can afford a good lawyer, because they will certainly need them. Apple is asking for an injunction, damages, royalties, and legal costs for the lawsuits. Which if you put it all together, will cost Motorola millions of dollars to pay Apple back if they secede to Apple.

    Oh... and obvious patents are obvious. If the judge is reasonable, most of Apple's patents will get tossed out.
