Motorola Wants New Patent Licensing Terms for Microsoft

An executive at Google Inc.'s Motorola Mobility unit said it is trying to propose new patent licensing terms for Microsoft Corp., as the cellphone maker remains locked in legal battles with both the software giant and Silicon Valley gadget maker Apple Inc. While more than 50 companies have worked out licensing agreements with the firm over its intellectual property, Motorola Vice President of Intellectual Property Kirk Dailey said Microsoft and Apple "are outliers, in that they don't want to pay" for licenses.
