Washington: Google-owned Motorola Mobility has dropped complaints involving patent infringement against Apple, a news wire has reported.

In a brief filing with the International Trade Commission made on Monday, Motorola Mobility said it was dropping without prejudice a complaint that Apple had infringed on seven Motorola patents.

The two companies have been locked in an international patent war since 2010, as Apple has sought to limit the growth of Google's Android system. The fight has embroiled Samsung, HTC and others that use Android.
