Motorola was won an injunction in a German court against Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console, their windows 7 operating system, Microsoft’s Internet explorer and Windows Media Player.
The court ruling has yet to be enforced, but the court has decided that the Microsoft products listed have infringed on two of Motorola’s patents which are essential for the H.264 video standard.
The ruling took place last week, but was only disclosed today according to a recent report by Foss Patents, and Motorola could now stop Microsoft from selling and making the products in question available in Germany.
Microsoft is expected to lodge an appeal, and it isn’t clear as yet whether Motorola intends to enforce the ruling against Microsoft, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
