Google’s purchase of Motorola Mobility expected to get approval

The WSJ reports the U.S. Justice Department will approve Google’s bid to buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion, as soon as next week. According to other published accounts, European regulators are expected to make their decision by Monday. The Wall Street Journal reports that regulators remain concerned about the huge portfolio of patents Google will gain from the deal. The DOJ will closely monitor the company to ensure that the company licenses them to competitors on fair terms.
