British Telecom has filed a lawsuit against Google at a United States court over its Android mobile OS stating that it has infringed numerous important patents of the company. This lawsuit filed in Delaware State of the United States pertains to infringement of six British Telecom patents by Android products. Huge damages have been claimed against the same. If, BT wins this appeal, it will force Google to pay the telecom company royalties on all Android handsets sold till date, and also the ones that are going to be produced in the future. This could turn out to be quite an expensive proposition for Google. The same legal petition may also be filed in Europe in the near future. British Telecom has confirmed taking this legal step against Google to the Guardian. Google has also reacted stating that the claims were baseless, and that the company would strongly defend themselves against the same.
