Microsoft Loses Ruling in Patent Case Against Motorola

Microsoft Corp. lost a U.S. court ruling on its claim that Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility unit breached a contractual obligation to license some of its patents on fair and reasonable terms. Microsoft is seeking to curb royalty demands from Motorola Mobility on Microsoft products including the Xbox gaming system and Windows products, and prevent Motorola Mobility from banning sales or U.S. imports of the Xbox.
