FTC to sue Google/Motorola Mobility?
FTC Staff Said to Formally Recommend Google Patent Suit
Oh boy. It's been noted on Twitter that Google/Motorola has not had a great track record in their patent litigation...
Google Inc. (GOOG) should be sued by the Federal Trade Commission for trying to block competitorsí access to key smartphone-technology patents in violation of antitrust law, the agencyís staff told commissioners in a formal recommendation, according to four people familiar with the matter.
A majority of the agencyís five commissioners are inclined to sue, according to the people, who declined to be identified because the matter isnít public. A final decision on the staff recommendation, made last month, isnít likely until after the Nov. 6 presidential election, they said.
