Motorola fails to win Xbox banXbox 360

A US judge has ruled that Google’s Motorola unit cannot ban sales of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 games console because of a patent dispute.

Judge James Robart’s ruling came part-way through a trial in which the handset maker is claiming its rival should pay up to $4bn (£2.5bn; 3bn euros) a year for use of its connectivity and video-coding patents.

Microsoft has argued the technologies are only worth a fee of $1m a year.

The ruling also applies to Germany.

Writing An Admission Essay With Quotes Judge Robart denied Motorola’s request on the grounds that the patents in question were Frand-type innovations – inventions which the firm has recognised are critical to industry standards and should be therefore be licensed on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.

They include technologies necessary to make use of videos coded in the H.264 format, and to connect to the internet over wi-fi.

Since Microsoft was not challenging the need for a fee, but rather just how much it should pay, he indicated that the outstanding amount owed could be added to Microsoft’s bill once the matter was resolved.
