Xbox 360 doesn’t violate wireless patent held by Motorola, says judge

Saturday, 23rd March 2013 19:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Xbox 360 does not violate a patent held by Motorola, US trade judge David Shaw said in a note posted to the ITC website (PDF). The patent in question pertains to wireless network connections, and the dispute over it has been going on between the two firms since 2010 – in both Europe and the US. The judge’s findings will now be heard by a six-member commission. It was reported back in January that Motorola had dropped two of its patent infringement suits against Microsoft regarding video-coding and connectivity tech within the console, but apparently not the wireless patent. The case originally involved five patent claims. More through Bloomberg. Thanks, Polygon.

    “Xbox 360 does not violate a patent held by Motorola, US trade judge David Shaw said in a note” – Stephany, you missed spelt “Judge got paid.”

    Good news. I do so hate these overbroad patents. Next infringement case: Carpenters gets sued for driving nails into wood with a hammer.

    @#1 Motorola was suing them for retroactive royalties over codecs that were free at the time they were put into use, but gosh yeah those evil Microsoft guys probably paid off the judge to win this totally frivolous and hole-filled lawsuit.
