Motorola Wins Injunction Against Microsoft in Germany
Motorola has successfully defeated Microsoft in a case in Germany, resulting in a potential ban on the sale of products like the Xbox 360.
The issue has been a battle over the patent rights of H.264 playback. This also means that Windows 7, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player can’t be sold in Germany, alongside the Xbox 360.
The action hasn’t come into effect yet, it still requires a decision from a US court in the coming weeks. Microsoft are expected to appeal the decision which would have a hugely negative effect on their product sales.
