Hot on the heels of yesterday’s news that Motorola would be seeking 2.25% an iPhone after a patent win against Apple in Germany, it seems the Android OEM is picking up their patents and setting their sights on a new target. According to FossPatents, it seems the German court who sided with Motorola would most likely side with them again in their patent dispute with Microsoft, possibly gaining the same 2.25% for sales of their products like Windows 7, Xbox 360, etc.

The patents in question have to do with Motorola’s video compression and decompression technology, used for reducing bandwidth when streaming video online. We’ll have to wait to see how things turn out but I guess it’s only fitting after the royalties Microsoft has been receiving from Android OEM’s who caved in to their demands.
