Motorola Mobility has filed its second lawsuit against Apple with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), which, if successful, could effectively ban the sale of the iPhone, Mac computers and the iPad from the United States.
The Google-owned handset maker said in a statement:
We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple’s unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice but to defend ourselves and our engineers’ innovations.
Motorola has accused the iOS firm of breaching a total of of its patents pertaining to location-based reminders, media playback on phones, Siri, push email notifications, as well as others.
The company, who were bought by Google for $12.5 billion, has previously won a case against Apple in Germany over their data synchronization patent. Due to the lawsuit’s success, iCloud users can’t have iCloud email pushed to their iOS devices while they’re within Germany.
