Motorola pulls its ITC lawsuit against Apple

Motorola today pulled its lawsuit against Apple, just weeks after filing against the Cupertino-based company.  Initially centered around seven alleged patent violations, Motorola did not give any reason for the withdraw but made certain to iterate that “there are no agreements between Motorola and Apple, written or oral, express or implied, concerning the subject matter of this investigation.” In other words, this isn’t necessarily the end of things and that Apple and Motorola/Google have not come to terms of an agreement.  It’s an interesting twist to be sure, and one that could have any number of potential reasons for having happened
