In a nutshell, Apple is suing Motorola over its smartphone portfolio including the Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, Cliq, Cliq XT, BackFlip, Devour A555, Devour i1, and Charm.
The primary patent is 7,479,949, which covers touchscreen device, method and interface. Other patents in the Apple lawsuit include 6,493,002 and 5,838,315.
In its first complaint, Apple said:
Motorola directly infringes and/or will infringe the ’949 patent by making, using, selling, offering for sale, and importing the mobile devices and related software practicing the claimed inventions of the ’949 patent. Moreover, Motorola is aware of the ’949 patent, at least because Motorola was provided with a copy of this Complaint upon its filing. Motorola indirectly infringes the ’949 patent by knowingly inducing the infringement of these patents by end users of its mobile devices. Further, on information and belief, Motorola contributes to the infringement of the ’949 patent because Motorola knows that its mobile devices are made for use in infringement and are not staple articles of commerce suitable for substantial non-infringing use.
