September 16, 2013 - Micrografx, a graphics software company that is owned by Corel - the maker of CorelDraw and WordPerfect - filed two separate patent infringement lawsuits against Google, its subsidiary Motorola, and Samsung over three graphics patents. Micrografx claims the companies are infringing the patents by running Google Maps and Chrome Browser on Android devices.

In both lawsuits, Micrografx has asked to be awarded adequate damages to compensate for the alleged infringement but is not requesting a permanent injunction against any of the defendants - meaning that Micrografx does not seek to stop the devices from being sold.
