Motorola recently won an ITC ruling that said that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console infringed on some Motorola patents, and now an ITC judge has ruled that Microsoft’s popular gaming console should face an import ban in the US.
Luckily the Xbox 360 will not be banned in the US just yet, the ITC ruling now has to go before a panel of six judges, and depending on the outcome it could spell trouble for Microsoft.
Microsoft has responded by saying that banning of the console in the US would be ‘contrary to public interest’ and they are obviously hoping that the panel of judges will rule in their favor.
If the ITC does decided to ban the import of the Xbox 360, at least Microsoft will have some sort of bargaining power with Motorola, as they recently won a ruling banning the import on certain Motorola smartphones and tablets.
