Motorola wins patent case against Microsoft in Germany
This is the last of a series of lawsuits held in the regional court of Mannheim, Germany. Microsoft has previously won three patent cases, which led to actually banning some Motorola devices from sale in Germany.
"This decision does not impact multiple injunctions Microsoft has already been awarded and has enforced against Motorola products in Germany," Microsoft associate general counsel at Microsoft David Howard said.
Google has bought Motorola for $12.5 billion mostly for its strong patent portfolio which the company is using to defend Android, but also as a separate phone maker.

Given Windows is a dominant PC OS the MS Windows related patents should be deemed standard and cannot be used to ban infringing products.
