Intellectual Ventures files patent lawsuit against Motorola

Intellectual Ventures, the patent acquisition company founded by former Microsoft Chief Technology Officer Nathan Myhrvold, filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming Motorola Mobility infringes on several of its patents.

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court of Delaware, claims Motorola “derives substantial revenue from the sale of infringing products.”

Intellectual Ventures posted a statement by its Chief Litigation Counsel Melissa Finocchio, that says, in part:

“Intellectual Ventures has successfully signed licensing agreements with many of the top handset manufacturers in the world, and has been in discussions with Motorola Mobility for some time. Unfortunately, we have been unable to reach agreement on a license. We have a responsibility to our current customers and our investors to defend our intellectual property rights against companies such as Motorola Mobility who use them without a license.”

We have a request for comment in to Motorola.

Motorola is also facing a patent-infringement lawsuit filed by Microsoft, one of the many battles currently raging over patents.
