at Mutually Assured Destruction: Google/Motorola vs. Apple
"Motorola Mobility is asking the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban the import of iPhones, iPads, and Macs."The suit is based on patent infringements that have no FRAND protection, i.e. they involve patents that are not so-called "standard essential", where courts can not force companies to license such patents. Without such licenses, iPhones and iPads and Macs are alleged to infringe those Google/Motorola patents and thus can not be imported to the USA, based on the standards set by the ITC in favor of Apple against Samsung or HTC.
You live by the sword. You die by the sword.
Tough for Apple? No sympathy here.
We think that Apple products deserve to be banned from import. Apple started the patent thermonuclear war against the competition in a bitter battle that tries to bypass the capitalist market system rather than to compete for consumers in shops and stores, and as human wars of history have proven, whoever starts a war like that must end up -- deservedly -- in the dust, to keep mankind from being enslaved by monopolists and similar tyrants.
