    Default FTC to sue Google/Motorola Mobility?

    FTC Staff Said to Formally Recommend Google Patent Suit

    Google Inc. (GOOG) should be sued by the Federal Trade Commission for trying to block competitors access to key smartphone-technology patents in violation of antitrust law, the agencys staff told commissioners in a formal recommendation, according to four people familiar with the matter.

    A majority of the agencys five commissioners are inclined to sue, according to the people, who declined to be identified because the matter isnt public. A final decision on the staff recommendation, made last month, isnt likely until after the Nov. 6 presidential election, they said.
    Oh boy. It's been noted on Twitter that Google/Motorola has not had a great track record in their patent litigation...
