Microsoft infringes MMI patents: U.S. trade judge
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Microsoft infringed Motorola Mobility's patents in making its popular Xbox gaming consoles, a judge for the International Trade Commission ruled on Monday.
Motorola Mobility, which is being acquired by Google, had filed related lawsuits against Microsoft in district courts in Wisconsin and Florida.
The full commission will review the judge's decision and issue a final ruling in August
It would seem that it would be useful for MSFT to have some leverage to use against MMI. TIVO could provide some leverage, especially with the potential for VZ and TWX indemnification by MMI. I wonder what Tivo's patents could provide to MSFT against MMI
