MOSCOW, September 13 (RIA Novosti) - The Moscow Arbitration Court rejected Wednesday a suit worth 291.3 million rubles (about $10.8 million) filed by the U.S. mobile phone producer Motorola against Russian company RUS GPS.
In May 2006, RUS GPS publicly accused the U.S. company of using its technology in Motorola's mobile phones. Motorola applied to the court to seek $10.8 million in damages to its business reputation.
Motorola Vice President Scott Offer earlier said the U.S. company was a world leader in creating and protecting intellectual property, and that the alleged patent infringement was totally without merit.
However, the court threw out the defamation suit.
