Motorola Mobility is counter-suing Apple (AAPL) again: the Google (GOOG) unit claims iOS devices infringe on 7 of its patents, and wants ITC import bans. But this time, Motorola (like Apple in its many suits) isn't suing over standards-essential IP that might need to be licensed on FRAND terms, but software patents covering features such as e-mail notifications and Siri. "We would like to settle these patent matters, but Apple's unwillingness to work out a license leaves us little choice," says Motorola. (Posner on software patents)
