BT sues Google over Android Market, Maps, Search, Plus and Offers British Telecom (BT) has filed a lawsuit against Google, claiming many of its most popular products and services violate patents.
The products and services include the Android Market, Google Maps, Google Search, Google+ and Google Offers.

The patents allegedly being violated are related to "cover systems for navigation information, service provision system for communications networks, and telecommunications apparatus and method," says Cnet. BT is seeking monetary damages and an injunction on all the services.

As expected, Google is fighting the claims, saying: "We believe these claims are without merit, and we will defend vigorously against them."

Google has been the defendant in a high number of lawsuits over the past few years, mainly linked to their Android operating system. Heavy hitters like Oracle, Apple and Microsoft all claim patent violations.
