Google’s Motorola Purchase Approved by U.S. Department of Justice
Today has been a great day for Google as it has produced some good news regarding its acquisition of Motorola. In addition to the EU Commission’s approval of the purchase, Google has now received the okay from the U.S. Department of Justice. The approval however did not come without worry. The U.S. Department of Justice echoed concerns expressed by the EU Commission earlier in the day stating that “how Google may exercise its patents in the future remains a significant concern”. This leaves regulators in China, Taiwan, and Israel as the only remaining approvals Google is waiting for.
