Microsoft's Xbox doesn't violate Motorola wireless connectivity patent
Washington: A US judge has ruled that software giant Microsoft’s Xbox doesn't infringe on wireless patents owned by Motorola Mobility, which is now a part of Google.
The International Trade Commission judge said that the technology Microsoft uses for wireless communication with the Xbox doesn't infringed on a Motorola patent for wireless connectivity.
Motorola said in a statement it was ‘disappointed with the determination and look forward to the full commission's review,” Fox News reports.
The administrative law judge David P. Shaw found that a patent violation "has not occurred."
Had the ITC found a violation, it could have banned import of the Xbox, which has been the best-selling video game terminal in the U.S.
According to the report, Microsoft said it was "pleased" with the finding and "confident that this determination will be affirmed by the commission."
