Google Buys Motorola: How Does The Acquisition of The Patent Dispute?. If the deal is rubber-stamped by the authorities, Google will have more than 17,000 wireless patents from Motorola Mobility.

With these patents, Google intends to defend themselves against lawsuits from competitors.

Google Buys Motorola: How Does The Acquisition of The Patent Dispute?

How important are the patents for Google, also shows the high purchase price for Motorola Mobility – US$ 40 per share, a premium of 63% to the market price. Because the appearance and functionality of smartphones, a bitter dispute has broken out. Even a basic design like touch screens or a hardware button can be patented, manufacturers in the U.S. Because sometimes confusingly similar to current devices, numerous legal battles are fought. Even experts increasingly lose the overview.

For manufacturers of phones and accessories for the software and means of escalating patent war is an enormous financial risk. Learn how Apple has sued the maker HTC Android last year, because the smartphones the iPhone will be too similar. In October, Motorola went to Apple to court for violating 18 patents to the iPhone. So in a round robin of the industry.

Some with grotesque consequences: After years of dispute agreed this year Nokia and Apple – six courts in four countries, the company had argued. Apple now pays an undisclosed sum. Its competitor Samsung has recently banned the iPad manufacturers to introduce his tablet computer to the EU. Motorola also will leave his home to Xoom. And Microsoft will earn from the payment of royalties by now to every smartphone, the HTC sold, US$ 5.

Early August, then threw the competition, Google will publicly patent-bullying. Apple, Microsoft and Oracle have teamed up to 6,000 patents from Nortel Networks to buy. Might mean for Google Android and the new producer licensing fees – US$15 per unit, the search giant fears. After Nortel Deal Google just paid US$4.5 billion times more than 1000 patents from IBM.

With the Motorola acquisition now comes the next blow. The one-time Google has gained not only a hardware manufacturer, but especially new ammunition for the patent war.
