The long-running Microsoft vs Motorola Mobility lawsuit over alleged patent infringements is finally coming to an end, as a jury has ruled in favor of Microsoft, and awarded the company $15 million in damages.

A judge ruled last year that Microsoft's Xbox 360 console had infringed on four of Motorola's patents, including video decoding and wi-fi technology from the company.

However, earlier this year that decision was overturned, and the same judge cleared Microsoft of any infringement. Now a U.S. District Court jury has decided that it was in fact Motorola that breached its agreements with Microsoft.

According to the Seattle Times, the jury came to the decision that Motorola was not providing its patent licences on fair and reasonable terms, and as such, awarded Microsoft the victory and damages.

A spokesperson for Microsoft said that it was "a landmark win for all who want products that are affordable and work well together," while Motorola said it will be appealing the decision.
