Judge Throws Out Apple v. Motorola Lawsuit Over “Unfair” Licensing Practicies

Remember last week, when we reported that Apple was only willing to pay $1 to Motorola for every iPhone sold over use of the Google-owned company’s patents? The lawsuit involving that report has now been tossed out by a judge in Wisconsin. Apple’s initial complaint that Google and Motorola were unfairly trying to license their patents in question has been shut down “with prejudice” by the judge. That means that the case is done at the trial court level, but can still be appealed, something Apple will likely do.
