BT sues Google for mobile-device technology patents
TT Correspondent |  |  20 Dec 2011

British Telecommunications has filed a law suit against Google Inc. (GOOG),  for allegedly infringing six U.S. patents for mobile-device technology in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.

Apart from this, BT is locked in a legal battle with U.S. cable company Cox Communications Inc. Last year it sued Cox Communications Inc. in the same court over four patents for transmitting data over cable networks. A trial in that case is tentatively scheduled for 2014, according to court papers.


“We believe these claims are groundless,” Jim Prosser, a Google spokesman, said in an e-mailed message. He said the company would defend against them.
