Apple sued Motorola for touchscreen patent infringement
Cody Harding at 12:00 AM ET

On October 29, 2010, Apple filed two lawsuits against rival smartphone manufacturer Motorola, alleging that several of Motorola's products infringed upon six patents owned by Apple that related to touchscreen technology. The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin and sought a permanent injunction against Motorola's use of the patents and royalties for unlawful past and future use. It is also sought a judgment declaring Motorola's actions "willful and deliberate." Apple has also sued Samsung, been sued by HTC, Samsung, and reached a settlement with Nokia in relation to the use of patented technologies.
