Today, MicrosoftÂ won aÂ German patent injunction against Google subsidiary Motorola. The court ruled that Android OS infringe patent no. EP1304891 on “communicating multi-part messages between cellular devices using a standardized interface”.Â Motorola is the only major Android OEM that has not licensed the essential patents from Microsoft yet. As a result of it, Microsoft sued them in USA, Germany and other places and even won an import ban against Android based Motorola devices in USA. I’m sure Motorola with its new owner GoogleÂ will come down to license patents from Microsoft soon by paying royalties. Read more about the case in details at the source link below.
