Motorola has filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission, alleging that RIM has infringed on five of Motorola’s patents. According to Motorola, RIM used to license these patents, but the deal expired in 2007.
The Motorola patents in the dispute relate to Wi-Fi access, application management, user interface and power management. The company wants the ITC to investigate RIM’s use of the patented technology. It is seeking an exclusion order that would bar imports of BlackBerry devices into the US and stop further sales of infringing products that have already been imported.
