Google's Motorola acquisition: Microsoft patent case takes a new turn


From All About Microsoft:
Microsoft and Motorola have been warring over patents for the past several months. Microsoft sued Motorola on October 1, 2010, over alleged infringement of Motorola’s Android smartphones on Microsoft’s patents. On November 9, Microsoft sued Motorola again over wireless and video coding patents that are used by the Xbox and smartphones. In the latter case, Microsoft claimed that Motorola is charging excessive royalties for its patents.

Motorola retaliated with its own countersuit on November 10, claiming infringement of 16 of its patents by Microsoft’s PC and server software, Windows Mobile and Xbox products.
