    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:

    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.

    OMG I am sorry but did you just say Motorola has been around longer than MS and Apple? Hahah... How wrong could you be. Maybe you meant the other way around or something, because that statement is just really wrong.

    Motorola was started in the late 20 or 30's.

    Didn't Motorola invent the cell phone. Jobs is just a greedy biotch that does not like the competition.
