Microsoft Slaps Motorola with Patent Lawsuit over Android

Anyone who did not see this one coming after Microsoft's patent deal with HTC and Apple's meticulousness in avoiding Windows Mobile in its suit against HTC hasn't been paying attention. Microsoft has filed a patent complaint with the US International Trade Commission, as well as a patent lawsuit in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington against Motorola over its Android-based devices.

Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout - Microsoft has sued Motorola over the company's Android-based devices. According to Microsoft, Motorola infringes upon nine of its patents relating to a whole array of stuff - with Microsoft being in the business for this long, you can barely take a piss without violating one of Redmond's patents.
