Jury gives Microsoft victory over Motorola in patent trial
Last year, in a trial heard in Seattle, a judge ruled that the appropriate licensing rate for Microsoft to pay to use Motorola patents for the Xbox was a small percentage of the amount that Motorola was seeking. Motorola wanted $4 billion a year for the rights to use the patents while the Judge ruled that $1.8 million was the proper fee.
In the most recent case, the judge said that Motorola was seeking too much to license patents like the H.264 video standard and a patent on Wi-Fi connectivity. Motorola says that it will appeal the decision.

Tell stop it to rotten Microsoft
1) Microsoft blackmails Android manufacturers so Microsoft has more money from one android than from one limited WP
2) Microsoft is full of corruption in, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Italy, Czechia, Germany, now recently in Russia and Kazakhstan
Google just wants to defend against such a rotten company with
3) NSA back doors in every Windows

Right so the last line showed how silly you are.., so google isn't in on the NSA crap? Just stop being dumb already.

Hello silly, as you know android is open source so the NSA back doors would be discovered ;)
Maybe that is why it's open source= not to be pressed to include any back door while we have to use closed Microsoft with undiscoverable NSA back doors, you don't need to use open Google products
Think twice before posting ;)

That's just adorable. You do realize Android is NOT 100% open source right? And being open source does not stop a back door from being there. And Google's services aren't open source either, you know, Gmail, Google Calendar, Contacts, Google Voice, etc. Thats all just as accessible to the NSA as any Microsoft service.

You are really not so smart.....
You can use just the open source part of android ;)
No one press you to use gmail our another Google service
While we all have to use closed Windows due to corruption

Just stop before you embarrass yourself with your blinders. It's already been proven that both were giving data to the NSA but you wouldn't know that being stuck on googles genitals. Here's a tip, if you start to gag just back off and breath.

its lucky for Microsoft to paid 14 million to Google, as 4 billion is too much.
if it is Samsung, they would want it free.

What do any one expect?, the trial was held in the State of Microsoft, oops I mean Washington...
Think about it, this is how it works in the USA.

Therefore, i don't support companies that bring lawsuits to their competitors even the ones from Google or Android OEMs.
Eventually, their customer will be the one to pay for their ligation bills.
