ITC judge recommends import ban on Microsoft's Xbox


Recommended Posts

An administrative law judge for the International Trade Commission issued a recommendation that the commission ban 4GB and 250 GB Xbox gaming consoles from import to the United States. The recommendation(PDF) was released to the public on Monday, and would punish Microsoft for infringing against some of Motorola’s patents. The patents permit video transmission and compression on the console and between the console and its controllers.

This could have some serious implications on Microsoft's business model if the ban was enforced, but I

doubt it will be enforced. It's just one of many stupid IP court battles going on around the world at the moment.


Apple vs Samsung

Apple vs Google

Apple vs Microsoft

Google (Motorola) vs Microsoft


Silly times!
