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."
