“The European Commission is considering whether to formally investigate complaints brought by Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. against Motorola about the use of key patents, the European Union’s competition chief said Friday,” Alessandro Torello reports for MarketWatch.

“Earlier this year, the commission, the EU’s antitrust body, received two complaints against Motorola Mobility Inc over the use of patents,” Torello reports. “Microsoft Corp. filed a competition complaint against Motorola and its soon-to-be owner Google Inc. in connection with Motorola’s handling of patents it holds that form part of industry-wide standards for Internet connectivity.

Unlike other third rate narcissistic, plastic pushers, Apple is doing THE RIGHT THING! Defending what Steve Jobs & the legions of dedicated employees worked so hard to obtain.

AAPL obtained greatness through innovation and gobbs of LONG HOURS!!!

      FCK YOU Eric T. mole Schmidt!!!! You are indeed lower than the whale shit @ the bottom of the ocean! The world will be a better place when you cease to exist.

Google is the definition of Arrogance, narcissism & greed. Is there any JUSTICE in the world? Time will tell ALL.
