Motorola hit with MPEG patent claim
August 5, 2013
By Chris Forrester
The filing, made in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, alleges that Motorola Mobility supplied set-top boxes which used the MPEG-2 standard yet were not covered by licenses.
The filing is potentially doubly damaging for Motorola given that through a subsidiary company it was one of the developers of the MPEG-2 standard and had been one of MPEG LA’s owners.
