Google has been trying to get Microsoft’s Xbox console banned from sale in the US, according to Google the console apparently infringed on some of Motorola’s patents relating to the way the console communicates with the controllers.
Now the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has ruled that Microsoft’s Xbox does not infringe on the Motorola patents, which are now owned by Google, this is probably the final ruling in the case unless Google decides to appeal.
“This is a win for Xbox customers and confirms our view that Google had no grounds to block our products,” Microsoft Deputy General Counsel David Howard said in a statement.
The latest ruling upholds the original ruling on the case which was made in March, it will be interesting to see what Google and Motorola decided to do next.
