Apple goes to European Commission with complaint about Motorola

Re: Re: How in hell can "standards-essential patents" exist?

Erm, older iPhones don't use the Qualcomm baseband chip. Indeed, the iPhone 4S is safe from Motorola's licensing because it is a Qualcomm chipset and (I assume) covered by Qualcomm's licensing. Motorola is complaining about FRAND licensing because Apple isn't paying them licensing for the older iPhones chipset when Motorola believe they should and disagreeing about the cost.

Thats my understanding of a complex situation.
