Microsoft Cleared of Infringing Google Patents With Xbox

Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox video-gaming system doesn’t violate the patent rights of Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Motorola Mobility unit, a U.S. trade judge said.

In a one-paragraph notice yesterday, U.S. International Trade Commission Judge David Shaw sided with Microsoft in the case. His findings are subject to review by the six-member commission, which has the power to block imports of products that infringe U.S. patents.

The judge’s findings relate to a patent for a way to establish communication between the Xbox and accessories. It’s all that’s left of a case that originally involved five patents, including two on widely used technology for video decoding, and led to accusations by Microsoft and regulators that Motorola Mobility was misusing patents to thwart competition.

Motorola Mobility sucks big time. I am using a Motorola Xoom 2 tablet and it has been nothing but a pain. Why would someone infringe on something so poorly executed? Funny though, as this new mignt anger 'some' of the people on here lol.

Victory for gaming and yet you have disagrees. I'm pretty sure it's because this win is for Microsoft. I won't mention which fans would have liked to have this decision the other way around but I got a suspicion we all know who they are.
Pssh! Quit trying to be politically correct just to spare your bubbles. Immo say it for you, it's them SONY ass-kissers that be disagreeing.
It's not that they love SONY, it's that they hate everything else with a passion, that's the problem. On topic, suck it Google!!

Honesty is best, but on this site some don't like the truth. You can lose your bubbles real fast for telling it like it is here.

On topic: Google and Motorola look like chumps because of this. These frivolous claims tie up the courts and cost money. There are better things for the courts to do.
