No longer than a month after Microsoft filed suit against Motorola for patent infringement in their Android handsets, Bill Gates and crew are at it again, this time suing the phone maker for demanding “royalties that are excessive and discriminatory” for wireless and video coding standards. That’s right, Microsoft is asking to be compensated by Moto after the latter asked the former for money.

While not directly Android-related, this should only serve to rile up the building feud between the two companies. Does Motorola deserve royalties for the technology used? Who knows, but someone will walk away with pockets heavier than they came with.
