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 agency?s staff told commissioners in a formal recommendation, according to four people familiar with the matter.

A majority of the agency?s five commissioners are inclined to sue, according to the people, who declined to be identified because the matter isn?t public. A final decision on the staff recommendation, made last month, isn?t 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...
