Motorola To Collect IP Tax From Other Android Makers?

Motorola To Collect IP Tax
Now the Android world is going totally mad. Google what you say? Add $50 to Android Phone Cost of Manufacturing with all these taxes? Get your partners together!

"Motorola, who has long been one of Google’s key Android partners, happens to have a pretty massive patent portfolio. You’d think that would work in Google’s favor, since at least one of its major partners can hold its own against the likes of Apple and Microsoft. Yeah, not so much. Motorola has actually hinted, and subsequently more-than-hinted, that it may “potentially collect royalties” with its patent trove, rather than just defend itself, reports Unwired View. "
