Google’s Motorola Mobility Sued Over Cloud Data Patents

The Motorola Mobility unit of Google Inc. (GOOG), the world’s most popular Internet search engine, was sued by a patent holder claiming infringement of two U.S. patents for applications that allow remote-data access from handheld devices.

Clouding IP LLC, of Greensboro, North Carolina, contends Motorola Mobility, based in Libertyville, Illinois, is violating the patents, awarded in 2005 and 2007, by marketing its ZumoCast and MotoCast products, according to a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.
