Just last week Patently Apple posted a report titled "In Motorola vs. Apple Case, Motorola Hunts for Documents and Source Code from Oracle in Connection to Apple's iCloud." This was a case that Motorola had launched against Apple in both Illinois and Florida. In that report we questioned whether the lawsuit was being funded by Lenovo or Google. This was a classic example of novation. Tonight we got our answer: it was Google. In late breaking news Google's Motorola Mobility Unit and Apple agreed to settle all patent litigation between them over smartphones, ending one of the highest lawsuits in technology.
