Clouding IP claims that Motorola Mobility has infringed two of its patents
Clouding IP has filed a suit against Motorola Mobility, a unit of search engine giant Google, claiming infringement of two of its patents, at a federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, US.
According to Clouding IP, Motorola’s MotoCast and ZumoCast cloud service applications have infringed its US patents for applications which enable remote-data access from handheld devices.
MotoCast and ZumoCast will provide clients with access to access music, videos and files stored on their home computer via compatible mobile devices.
The company said both the patents were legally issued by the US Patent and Trademark Office on 02 August 2005 and 07 August 2007 respectively.
Earlier Microsoft had also sued Motorola Mobility, claiming that it is encountering potential restrictions against the Xbox 360 due to WiFi- and H.264-related patents
Motorola Mobility has signed an agreement with Apple to license its 3G-related patents in Germany, which are expected to be determined based on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms.
