Motorola loses ITC patent case, can’t ban Microsoft’s Xbox

24 11 2013

Microsoft has finally won a long-running battle at the International Trade Commission, one of the most popular venues for the corporate patent wars that have broken out in the last few years.

After Microsoft launched its patents against Motorola, the Illinois company—now under Google’s control—launched a variety of counterattacks in both federal courts and the ITC. It filed a case accusing Microsoft’s Xbox of violating several of its patents back in 2010. Initially, a judge did find that Microsoft infringed the patents, which were related to video transmission and compression as well as Wi-Fi. The case went back to the full six-member ITC for reconsideration, and the commission took its time to make a decision.

Now its decision is out, and Microsoft is off the hook for patent infringement.
