Short Take: Motorola named in patent suit

Motorola has been named in a patent infringement suit brought by General Patent (GPC), an R&D and technology transfer company. The suit seeks to enforce four of GPC's patents, which cover specific aspects of the PCMCIA credit-card-size modems used in notebook and laptop PCs. GPC also has filed patent infringement suits against IBM, U.S. Robotics (now 3Com), and seven modem manufacturers. IBM and two other companies settled, while others have agreed to license GPC's patents.
