Jury awards computing company $14 million in damages.
The on going bitch-fight between Google’s Motorola and Microsoft has come to a head, again.
It was claimed that Motorola broke agreements to provide technology to Microsoft on ‘fair and reasonable terms,’ reports Reuters.
Microsoft said in a statement: “This is a landmark win for all who want products that are affordable and work well together.
“The jury’s verdict is the latest in a growing list of decisions by regulators and courts telling Google to stop abusing patents.”
This claim comes after Microsoft paid out $1.8 million to the telecoms company last year, in a court battle where Motorola claimed that the amount it was paid to license wireless and video technologies used in the Xbox was way below what they asked for.
The $14 million rewarded to Microsoft this week, was about half of what was asked for – however $11 million was used to pay off the relocation of a warehouse in Germany, and $3 million covered legal fees, so they can't complain.
Your move Motorola...
