U.S. court denies Motorola's German Xbox 360 ban
: Microsoft has received some good news in its defence against a Motorola Mobility lawsuit, as a U.S. court has stated that the Google subsidiary cannot enforce an Xbox 360 ban in Germany.
Motorola was granted an injunction
against the distribution of various Microsoft products, including the Xbox 360, in Germany, with a German court ruling that Microsoft is infringing on Motorola's video coding and playback patents.
However, as reported by Bloomberg, a U.S. court has now said
that the order by the lower German court was narrowly tailored, and that the existing contract between the two companies will instead be used to determine a royalty rate to be paid out.
