Apple And Motorola Agree To End Legal Battle

Apple And Motorola Agree To End Legal BattleWe know that Apple has beef with several Android OEMs, like Samsung, Motorola, and HTC. Apple has since settled their issues with HTC, and it looks like they will be settling their beef with Motorola as well. According to a report from Reuters, it seems that Apple and Motorola have agreed to a settlement which will see both companies agree to dismiss pending patent litigation against one another.

In a joint statement released by both companies, “Apple and Google have also agreed to work together in some areas of patent reform.” Interestingly enough, the agreement between both companies did not contain a cross-licensing deal for either company’s patents, which is usually the case when it comes to settlement deals involving patent infringements.

In fact in the case with HTC, the company agreed to a 10-year licensing deal with Apple for their patents, which was part of their settlement agreement. Instead, Google (who is still Motorola Mobility’s owner) and Apple have agreed that they will be working together in some areas of patent reform.

It is unclear what it means by patent reforms, but we guess it’s still one less legal battle that will be making the headlines. Unfortunately it does not look like Apple’s dispute with Samsung is anywhere close to ending, but hopefully it will have a peaceful and amicable ending like it did with Motorola and HTC.
