Motorola Sued for MPEG-2 Patent Infringement
DENVER. - Saturday, August 3rd 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) MPEG LA, LLC, world leader in alternative one-stop patent licenses, today announced that three patent owners in MPEG LA’s MPEG-2 Patent Portfolio License ("MPEG-2 License”) have filed a patent enforcement action in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Motorola Mobility LLC ("Motorola”) for willful infringement of patents essential to the MPEG-2 digital video compression standard used worldwide in digital television and DVD.

According to the complaint, Motorola offers set-top boxes that use the MPEG-2 standard without a license under essential patents. Motorola, either directly or through one of its subsidiaries, was a licensee of the MPEG-2 License (including the patents-in-suit) until December 31, 2010. Motorola, through one of its subsidiaries, was an original licensor in MPEG LA’s MPEG-2 License and has been one of MPEG LA’s owners.
