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.

LOL at GOOGLE crying that Apple are patent trolls when they do the same thing.

Eat humble pie Google.

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.

Brawler4100d ago

They are but they are suing because of microsoft making money on all their phones. So it goes both ways FYI.

MASTER_RAIDEN4100d ago

not sure why the disagrees, thats EXACTLY what googles been making apple out to be nowadays...

Good_Guy_Jamal4100d ago

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.

Hingle_Mcringleberry4100d ago

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!!

ALLWRONG4099d ago (Edited 4099d ago )

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.

I think it's best we leave these games we're they belong...in the past

Secret Rings, Unleashed, Black Knight etc, they weren't the best at least enough for a remaster

Generations is getting one because they had something easy to shove Shadow into before the Sonic 3 film and it's probably the better ones they've did over the past decade or so.

Unleashed was one of my favorite P3 games would love a remastered version
