Here is what you do not know, Motorola Mobility owns all the IP after Solutions and the Home  Business was split off, both those companies were licenses of all the Motorola Inc IP, which was made up a number of companies Motorola bough throughout the 1990's today. Also Motorola Solution also licenses all the Motorola branding and trade names as well. The Samsung deal with Google would logically extend to all the Motorola Inc IP unless they limited to certain IP. But what would Samsung license only Mobile phone IP they already get them as part of the FRAND Licensing.

 

Where did you think Motorola got 22,000 patents their engineers are not all that good, they got about 2000 from the home business unit which does video products, Google is loving having access to those patents.

According to The Verge

The Verge only printed part of the report. Apparently the iPhone app spy kit, Warrior Pride, was developed first with the Android version coming shortly thereafter in latter half of 2010.

The iPhone spy package can get "any content from the phone, e.g. SMS, MMS, e-mails, web history, call records, videos, photos, address book, notes, calendar (if its [sic] on the phone we can get it)." The Android slide differs slightly in that the last sentence is a qualified "we think we can get it"

There's also some new questions about a company called Millennial Media and their association with some of the mentioned apps. In an odd bit of timing their CEO and founder stepped down earlier today and effective immediately, shortly after this latest app spying story was revealed.

Just gets worse and worse doesn't it?

Right behind this licensing agreement Google and Cisco have now announced they've also agreed to cross-license each other's patents.

Still won't save them from whatever comes from their upcoming Rockstar trial (and I'm pretty sure this is going to be the one that hurts their mobile efforts the most).

IMO there's a good chance Google will turn this back onto Rockstar themselves and successfully prove inequitable conduct in the issuance of the asserted search patent. If so Rockstar and it's ownership will lose all rights to monetize the patent. If you haven't read the counterclaim you should take a few minutes to do so. It's pretty detailed.

If you want to go straight to it begin with page 8.

I'll have to read that later...impossible for me to read on an iPhone with no glasses.
