Seeks full blown intervention from European Telecommunications Standards Institute

Tags:

In yet more developments in the Apple-vs.-The-World patent disputes, Engadget is reporting that Apple is trying to get the European Telecommunications Standards Institute to intervene in their patent suit against Motorola. A move that comes just days after Google’s acquisition of Motorola was approved by the European Commission (Probably no connection).

As it turns out, Motorola revealed that it had received a letter from the European Commission saying that a complaint had been filed against them by Apple. The letter went on to state that Apple wanted the commission to “enforce the firm’s standards-essential patents that breach agreed FRAND commitments.”

The letter surfaced days after Apple was granted an injunction against Motorola’s implementation of slide-to-unlock. This latest development is just one of the many lawsuits apple has filed against what seems to be every smartphone manufacturer out there.
