Add this to the Motorola win over Apple column because according to the Administrative Law Judge appointed by the International Trade Commission in the Apple v. Motorola case, Motorola Mobility has not violated three patents held by Apple. Senior VP and general counsel of Motorola Mobility, Scott Offer issued a statement following the ruling:
“We are pleased with today’s favorable outcome for Motorola Mobility. Motorola Mobility has worked hard over the years to develop technology and build an industry-leading intellectual property portfolio. We are proud to leverage this broad and deep portfolio to create differentiated innovations that enhance the user experience.”
Interacting with the screen, including tapping, sliding and pinching with one or multiple fingers (multi-touch) were the disputed patents and Apple claimed that devices from the original Droid to the Charm were specifically in violation. While we don’t have all the details we have the press release which you can read after the break.
