Former Microsoft CTO Nathan Myhrvold and his giant Intellectual Ventures patent troll sued Motorola Mobility Thursday morning in federal court in Delaware for infringement.
It says MMI refused to take out a license after negotiations that started in January.
It charges violation of six patents and wants an injunction and damages. Microsoft and Apple are also suing MMI for patent infringement.
The patents, which about 17 Motorola phones, including of course Android models, are supposed to tread on, sound pretty basic, covering stuff like "File Transfer System for Direct Transfer between Computers," "Illumination Device and Image Projection apparatus Comprising the Device," "TCP/IP Packet-Centric Wireless Point to Multi-Point (PTMP) Transmission System Architecture," "Portable Computing Communication and Entertainment Device with Central Processor Carried in a Detachable Handset," "Method and System for Distributing Updates by Presenting Directory of Software Available for User Installation That Is Not Already Installed on the User Station," and "User Station Software That Controls Transport, Storage and Presentation of Content from a Remote Source."
The suit is on IV's web site.
