Apple and Motorola agrees to drop Patent lawsuits against each other and work on a reform

The two tech giants Apple and the Google owned Motorola has been in legal fights over Motorola suing apple for infringement over it's 3G patents and Apple suing Motorola over software infringement but now it looks like the heat is cooling down.



In a joint statement released by both companies stated "Apple and Google have agreed to dismiss all the current lawsuits that exist directly between the two companies." They also stated that "Apple and Google has also agreed to work together in some areas of patent reforms."

These lawsuit started from the year 2010 for suing each other over the reason mentioned in first paragraph. Motorola even succeeded to get a temporary ban on 3G iOS devices in Germany in the year 2011.

Earlier this year, Google ended selling the Motorola Mobility to the world's largest PC Maker Lenovo for $2.91 billions. If we dig more, back in the year 2012 Chicago court dismissed the case of both Motorola and Apple stating both companies doesn't have sufficient evidence regarding their cases.

Agreeing on Cross-licencing each other's patents would have been far more better but dropping the lawsuits too is a good choice.
