German court rules Motorola doesn't infringe Microsoft patent

08 октября 2012

The Mannheim Regional Court Friday ruled that Google Inc.'s Mobility Holdings Inc. division doesn't infringe on a patent held by Microsoft Corp.

The lawsuit concerned a radio interface patent, which makes the use of many applications easier for consumers. In full, patent EP1233343 is called "Method and radio interface layer comprising a set of application programming interfaces (APIs)."

Microsoft and Motorola weren't immediately available for comment.

Two weeks ago, a court in Munich ruled in Microsoft's favor in a patent infringement suit and granted Microsoft the right for an injunction against the sale of the affected smartphones and tablets in Germany. The patent relates to a system that assists mobile-phone keyboards communicating with applications.

In October 2010, Microsoft filed suit with the International Trade Commission, asserting Motorola's Android-based devices infringe nine Microsoft patents. The ITC is an independent U.S. federal agency that can block the sale or import of infringing products. Since then both sides have filed many additional patent infringement suits against each other in the U.S. as well as Germany.
