Now Motorola is resorting to patent trolling in the courts.

Could this be like hooking up an EKG and finding the patient in agonal rhythm?

When Motorola split the company and sold off the cellular handset division to Google it seemed to me this might be the end. First, there are the patents, what patent rights did MSI retain with respect to handsets? With the drive toward First
Net and LTE, is MSI going to be faced with paying for patents they once owned? Also the split put MSI in the position of having only one customer, the Government. Yes, there are state funds, but by and large the expenditures for overpriced P25 and LTE are subsidized with federal grants. We have a 30 foot wall to build, four ongoing wars, etc. Where will the funding go with the new budget? I wish MSI all the best, primarily because I get a pension check, but the management in past two decades has been shortsighted.
