http://fosspatents.blogspot.com Two days after its three complaints alleging that Apple infringes
Twitter: @FOSSpatents 12
a total of 18 different Motorola patents, Motorola files
in the District of Delaware a request for declaratory judgment
that Motorola does not infringe 12 Apple patents
(and that those
4 patents be deemed invalid in the first place).
Those 12 patents include the 10 patents asserted by Apple
10 8 3
against HTC before the ITC as well as 2 of the patents
over which Apple sues HTC in the District of Delaware.
With this pre-emptive move, Motorola effectively triggered
5 3 6 12 6 the equivalent of being sued by Apple over those 12 patents.

software" -- complaint filed on 02 March 2010
as per
Apple Inc. and NeXT Software (both of Cupertino, CA 95014)
02 Dec 10 vs. High Tech Computer Corp. (of Taiwan), HTC America, Inc. (of Bellevue, WA 98005) and Exedea Inc. (of Houston, TX 77036)

page R-1 Partial consolidation stated further below (added Nokia Corp. and Nokia Inc. as defendants).

Allegedly infringing products
Apple's complaint distinguishes between two groups of products:
1) "Android": computing and mobile communication devices running the Android operating system;
examples: HTC Nexus One, HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1), HTC Magic (HTC myTouch 3G), HTC Hero, HTC Droid Eris
2) "DSP": other HTC products with digital signal processing functionality;
examples: HTC Touch Pro, HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro2, HTC Tilt II, HTC Pure, HTC HD2, HTC Imagio

Apple alleges that products in the "Android" group infringe all 10 asserted patents while "DSP" products infringe only the '263 patent.

Asserted patents (in order of appearance in documents filed with the ITC)

asserted by Apple in original complaint
5,481,721 ("721") Method for providing automatic and dynamic translation of object oriented programming language-based

Partial consolidation
On 26 Apr 2010, the ITC ordered the partial consolidation of case no. 337-TA-704 into this one. As a result, Nokia Corp. (of Espoo,
Finland) and Nokia Inc. (of White Plains, NY 10604) have to defend themselves alongside HTC against allegations of infringement of five
patents (the '867, '131, '705, '263 and RE486 patents). An unopposed Apple motion for partial termination on 28 Oct 2010 (relating to
four patents, three of which were subject to partial consolidation) reduced that subset of patents to two (the '705 and '263 patents).
Information concerning Nokia's allegedly infringing products will be provided athe document covering the Apple/Nokia dispute.
