Apple Wins Google’s Motorola Case Over Phone Sensors

Two years long battle between Apple and Google has finally come to an end. Apple has finally wins the case files by Google for its Motorola Mobility unit over a phone sensor. Although its a small win announced but it is the final patent that was invalidated today. On Monday, 22 April 2013, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has terminated the investigation of Google's Motorola lawsuit against Apple that threatened imports of the iPhone 4 into the U.S. with a finding of no violation.

The Bloomberg announced the news on twitter as breaking, "Apple wins case brought by Google's Motorola over phone sensors; Google's bid to block imports blocked".

The famous Apple vs Google case started in 2010 after Motorola filed a lawsuit against Apple, claiming the Cupertino-based company infringed on eighteen of Motorola's patents. After being acquired by Google, Motorola expanded its charges against Apple, stating that the company violated six patents having to do with iCloud.

Rodney Sweetland is a patent lawyer with Duane Morris in Washington who specializes in ITC cases stated to Bloomberg, “This is not a surprise because the commission has heretofore not found a violation by Apple in any case as to any claim in any patent. The commission is particularly attentive to the details in cases involving Apple, which implicate such a popular product and such an important part of commerce.”

Matt Kallman, a spokesman for Google, said the Mountain View, California-based company was disappointed and is “evaluating our options.” Amy Bessette, a spokeswoman for Apple, said the company had no comment.

Apple is the final winner of lawsuit but Google can appeal the decision, thus further extending the litigation between the two companies.
