Motorola Got a Good Kicking from Microsoft

Microsoft is celebrating after seeing off Google-owned Motorola Mobility in a patent legal fight over the H.264 codec. Press reports reveal that the battle involves three patents, 7,310,374; 7,310,375, and 7,310,376, which the company licensed to the Xbox 360, Windows and Windows Phone.

Motorola wanted $4 billion annually, which Microsoft believes is a little on the steep side. It also believes that it violates fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory standards. As such, the company claimed it will write a cheque for $1,000,000 and not a penny more.

US district judge James Robart has issued a 28-page ruling, where he granted Microsoft’s request for a partial summary judgment. The judge ruled many of Motorola’s claims invalid simply because the language in its patents is “not sufficiently articulate”.

According to James Robart, the plaintiffs has provided substantial evidence from various sources, including technical journals and dictionaries, to prove, for example, that some of Motorola’s technologies amounted to general purpose devices which are indistinguishable from the general purpose PC.

Later, a patent blogger Florian Mueller wrote that a rate might finally be specified soon, and it would likely to be in the vicinity of a few hundred thousand dollars annually. This outcome will hinder any attempt from the search giant to screw billions of dollars out of other entities. In addition, it looks like the $12.5 billion it spent on Motorola Mobility’s extensive array of intellectual property might fail to give the company what it hoped.

Actually, getting money out of Microsoft wasn’t the initial plan. Instead, it was more an attempt by the search giant to stop Microsoft and Apple killing off Android with patent actions.

Maddog0266 avatarI agree that MS is big and was greed, but It looks good on Google. I like Google but they are trying to take over on things. For Motorola to be looking for so much money is a shame. All the big companies are just after the big bucks these days. They are pushing out there stuff fast without really checking there stuff out or releasing a new updated product 30 to 90 days later after the public just paid for the one they got. Look at MS they released Win 8 in Oct 2012 and now they are going to release Win 9 in Aug this year. MS did one thing right they are selling Win 8 for cheap not like in the past. While others are still way out there for there products. People don't get it, why would you pay $400.00 to $800.00 for a phone. I know you get it free if you sign up for 3 years, but if you really look at it you are still paying the big bucks for it to the services. We have the one of the best networks in the world here in Canada and USA, but the shitest services around and we pay for it. If we the consumer, would really think about it and do something about it, not just talk about it the price would come down. Just same as internet service here, we pay really big bucks for shit. We pay them a big monthly fee plus we pay big bucks for going over there cap every month. They say its because there system can't handle the large volume, yet the come out with faster service every six month.

skulljockey avatarThat was a tacless comment. I see no reason to be rude. MS in it's early days were I believe were buying up patient on the cheap. I'm not that well versed on their history but didn't MS buy the patient for the whole concept of windows from Xerox or maybe some other faily well known company for I believe 10 Gs? I need to brush up on Bill Gate et al history. Thanks for posting the artical Sam.

giraffe avatar@ skulljockey the GUI was bought from Xerox by Steve Jobs with Apple stock and MS copied the Mac OS by making windows. Bill Gates did buy DOS in the early days of computers for $50K.

@drkavint as a few people have pointed out: android for PC is called Linux. If you search for Ubuntu you can get a live CD which lets you try it without altering your computer.

pooh6299 avatarAndroid still got long way to go, because on PC and Laptop they don't have much hardware support, which mean you can only buy the PC/notebook, load with Android, even you get that still don't have printer and video card drivers support from MDG. Also Android doesn't have good office application yet (Google doc is joke). Android need focus on Apple right now, IOS 7.0 is real powerful,

giraffe avatar@pooh6299 Linux has the best hardware support then any other OS. There are many office alternatives like free office, libre office which are better then the MS version. IOS 7 doesn't exist yet.
