Motorola asks for halt of Xbox 360 sales

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Patent infringement
Motorola has filed a complaint with the US ITC against Microsoft, claiming that the Xbox 360 violated a number of the company’s patents.

The move was described as somewhat of a response to the earlier Microsoft’s lawsuit, which accused Motorola of excessive and discriminatory royalties. Motorola now claims Microsoft infringed a number of their patents in its Xbox 360.

Motorola asks for a halt of Xbox 360 sales until the matter is cleared up. The US ITC said investigation is expected to conclude early in 2011.

Do patent suits ever have any real basis in a world where everything is based on some variation of a silicon chip ? Or are lawyers just an expensive tool in a continuing game of corporate one-upmanship ? Sounds like MS slapped Hellomoto so hellomoto kicked MS in the shins.....

It won't happen. They're being unrealistic to boot.

If the US ITC decides to make a ban, I am sure Microsoft will agree to Motorola's terms so a stop in Xbox 360 shipping won't happen.

I don't know what Motorola is thinking but if for some reason the courts force Micro$oft to halt all XBOX 360 sales that would be bad news for Motorola due to the fact if they ever lose this complaint w/ US ITC then they would be responsible for paying back MS for all sales lost.
Anyway Motorola is already making a lot of money off Mifro$oft, why stir up trouble now?

Interesting because I invented the lower back plate of the XBOX 360 which MS pays me a fee of $0.10 for every XBOX 360 sold.

Well the USPTO will rubber stamp anything, so as long as you had the foresight to pay their little rubber stamp fee and get your patent you should have a good case!!!
