Patent Trollers Strike Again! Intellectual Ventures Sues Motorola

Notorious patent troll Intellectual Ventures has struck again, this time going after Motorola for supposedly "infringing" their "patents."

I'm using sarcastic quotation marks here because Intellectual Ventures is not a real tech company, just a front for a team of highly successful patent trolls. Here's what the trolls say about Motorola:

We have a responsibility to our current customers and our investors to defend our intellectual property rights against companies such as Motorola Mobility who use them without a license.We have a responsibility to our current customers and our investors to defend our intellectual property rights against companies such as Motorola Mobility who use them without a license.

Do note that Intellectual Ventures doesn't actually have any "customers," just investors who want blood. As long as things like this still happen, Obama's "Patent Reforms Bil" means nothing.

As expected, the six patents in question cover general phone processes, including "File Transfer System for Direct Transfer Between Computers" and "Portable Computing Communcation and Entertainment Device with Central Processor Carried in a Detachable Handset."
