Apple, Google dismiss patent lawsuits

The agreement does not apply to the more prominent patent feud between Apple and Samsung Electronics, even though Google had helped cover some of Samsung’s legal costs for the latest patent trial between Apple and Samsung that ended this month.

Google acquired Motorola Mobility in 2012 for $12.5 billion and said this year that it planned to sell the Motorola phone business to Lenovo, while keeping the bulk of the patents it inherited in the acquisition.

Motorola Mobility sued first, and Apple started suing other manufacturers, saying that phones running on Google’s Android operating system were copying features of the iPhone.
