Microsoft Files EU Complaint Against Google, Motorola

Microsoft filed a complaint with European Union antitrust authorities accusing Google and Motorola Mobility, a smartphone company the Internet search giant plans to buy, of charging too much for use of its patents, marking a new stage in a long-running feud between Microsoft and Google. “We have taken this step because Motorola is attempting to block sales of Windows PCs, our Xbox game console and other products,” David A. Heiner, a senior Microsoft lawyer, wrote in a blog post.
