Motorola’s puzzling weakness

Google’s (GOOG) acquisition of Motorola was supposed to be about boosting up its patent portfolio against Apple (AAPL) but so far the company has failed to land any major blows against its rival. And now Bloomberg TV has reported on its Twitter account that Motorola has dropped its latest claim against Apple in front of the United States International Trade Commission. FOSS Patents speculates that Motorola may have withdrawn its complaint in front of the ITC because it’s been “having problems with tracking down all of the documents related to some of its patents-in-suit” and that “by the time it filed its complaint, it did not have certified copies of all of the relevant documents (patent documents, prosecution history documents, assignment documents) attached.”
