A US International Trade Commission judge has ruled that Microsoft violated four Motorola Mobility patents with Xbox 360. A commission will now review the ruling and determine what action should be taken. The body has the ability and authority to put a ban on selling products which infringe on patents. However, should a settlement be reached between the two companies, the decision would be tossed. Motorola told Bloomberg it filed the complaint because Microsoft alleged the firm’s Android devices were in violation of patents file by Microsoft. Thanks, Gamespot.
