Microsoft has been pursuing Motorola for quite some time in courts. The reason was an alleged infringement of one of Microsofts patents by Motorola, which included certain texting features in its smartphones. These features, according to Microsoft, are owned by the company and Motorola should have bought a license to use them. And it seems now that a German court agrees to Microsoft’s plea.


A German court has ruled that Motorola has infringed upon the patents. The option of sending a long text in chunks of smaller messages is indeed patented by Microsoft, the court expressed, and that Motorola had no right to use it.

Microsoft folks are naturally jovial over the decision and were quick to remark, “We’re pleased the court agreed today that Motorola has infringed Microsoft’s intellectual property, and we hope Motorola will be willing to join other Android device makers by taking a license to our patents.”

Motorola, on the other hand, isn’t too happy. Currently, the company is owned by Google who was recently able to seal the acquisition deal. According to Motorola, “We expect a written decision from the court on June 1 and upon review, will explore all options including appeal.”

While that translates to a significant victory for Microsoft, the battle between the two companies is far from over. Motorola is also suing Microsoft in U.S. over certain features in the Xbox gaming console and the two companied are locked  in legal cases all over the globe.
