Motorola hasn’t exactly fared well against Microsoft in Germany in these patent wars, but it has won at least one decision against the Seattle-based company. German courts ruled that Motorola didn’t infringe on a certain Microsoft patent that we are still trying to identify, and Motorola won’t be faced with any injunction woes for the patent in question
Motorola has already been subject to two injunctions in the country, with a third injunction being prepared. It’s good for Motorola which quickly seems to be finding itself in hot water after deciding to fight this Microsoft thing instead of settling like many others.
Motorola has elected to sue Microsoft for patents of its own in the region, though the company has faced very limited success in comparison to its foe. Motorola has also been battling Microsoft here on both their home turfs, but neither has been able to gain much traction in the way of any juicy injunction action.
