Googles (GOOG) acquisition of Motorola was supposed to be about boosting up its patent portfolio against Apple (AAPL) but so far the company has failed to land any major blows against its rival.

FOSS Patents speculates that Motorola may have withdrawn its complaint in front of the ITC because its been having problems with tracking down all of the documents related to some of its patents-in-suit ? and that by the time it filed its complaint, it did not have certified copies of all of the relevant documents (patent documents, prosecution history documents, assignment documents) attached. ?
