Fujifilm taking Motorola to court over a few patents
So, we’ve got another high-class company taking out some frustration in the modern market on Android OEMs. Fujifilm has elected to take out its patent portfolio and have a browse of what they can sue for today.
And who’s the culprit? Google’s newly acquired Motorola it seems. Fujifilm is taking Moto to the courts for four separate patents which refer mostly to (you guessed it) photography and facial recognition software. If you’re interested in all the mumble jumble than you can hit up any of these links to find out more:
If you’re like me and want the short piece, Motorola is pretty much being taken to court for the process in which its phones covert and process images, enable face detection and communicate with other devices “over a path other than the telephone network.” It would be common sense to think that pretty much every Android OEM does this, so for Motorola to be copping all the blame is a bit harsh. Perhaps Fujifilm know something about Moto’s patents that we do not.
This new court-case does beg the question, does taking legal action against Moto mean taking legal action against El Goog? How far will Google come to protect its $12.5 billion acquisition?
