It may be a tedious process, but if successful… damages claim could run into billions.
The web giant, Google is suing the British telecoms group (BT) in the US and the UK, claiming four of its patents have been violated, relating to the transmission of files within a network.
So it begins!!!
These patents were acquired by Google from companies: three IBM patents in 2010 and one from Fujitsu — include: US5581703, US5701465, US6807166 and US7460558 — a technology to transfer files to a remote computer; a VoIP gateway between a phone and the internet; and prioritising data over a multi-tier network.
Mediation around the existing case will begin in July 2013 at a US court.
“We have always seen litigation as a last resort, and we work hard to avoid lawsuits,” Google said in a statement. “But BT has brought several meritless patent claims against Google and our customers — and they’ve also been arming patent trolls. When faced with these kind of actions, we will defend ourselves.”
New finding finding reveals that Google is using Motorola patents, claiming it is making infringements in its IPTV services and its set-top boxes.
In another news, UK telecoms company, BT, is also suing Google in the U.S. over technology related to its Android operating system, Gmail and Google Maps services in a dispute that is yet to be resolved.Editor’s Picks:
