Fresh reports confirm that the dispute between Apple and Motorola Mobility over disputed patents has escalated to such a point that Motorola Mobility claims that Apple approached EU anti-trust officials to step-in to settle it for them. Quoting Motorola Mobility, the report cited, "On February 17, 2012, the company received a letter from the European Commission notifying it that the Commission has received a complaint against Motorola Mobility, Inc. by Apple, Inc. regarding the enforcement of MMI's standards-essential patents against Apple allegedly in breach of MMI's FRAND (fair and reasonable) commitments." The European Commission (EC) is a body, which essentially works towards ensuring that companies, operating within their 27-country EU work well with the FRAND (fair and reasonable) commitments they make.
