Motorola files patent infringement complaint against RIM The disputes over mobile technology patents just keep on coming. Yesterday, Motorola filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), alleging that Research in Motion (RIM) has infringed several of the company's held patents.
Motorola is asking the ITC to investigate possible infringements of five patents on early stage innovations such as Wi-Fi access, UI and application management, by the Blackberry-maker.

"In light of RIM's continued unlicensed use of Motorola's patents, RIM's use of delay tactics in our current patent litigation, and RIM's refusal to design out Motorola's proprietary technology, Motorola had no choice but to file a complaint with the ITC to halt RIM's continued infringement." said Jonathan Meyer, senior vice president of intellectual property law at Motorola.

"Motorola will continue to take all necessary steps to protect its R&D and intellectual property, which are critical to the Company's business."
