DOJ Antitrust has released a statement regarding Google/Motorola, Apple/Novell and Rockstar/Nortel. See Statement of the Department of Justice's Antitrust Division on Its Decision to Close Its Investigations of Google Inc.'s Acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. and the Acquisitions of Certain Patents by Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Research In Motion Ltd. I will be covering both of these developments in my antitrust mergers class later this semester. I think that it will be a very interesting two hour session. I also suspect that this will be an important session for the ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting (and if it is not yet -- hint, hint make it one).
