http://techcrunch.com – A judge in a U.S court has dismissed a case brought by Apple against Google-owned Motorola Mobility.

The patents in question are among the 17,000 acquired by Google when it bought Motorola Mobility last year – to bolster Android against legal attacks. According to the BBC, Motorola sought 2.25 percent of the price of Apple products that use some of its patents — but Apple was only prepared to pay $1 per device. B (IT news)
