Legal "Motorola Mobility has been granted an injunction against the distribution of key Microsoft products in Germany. The sales ban covers the Xbox 360 games console, Windows 7 system software, Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player. It follows a ruling that Microsoft had infringed two patents necessary to offer H.264 video coding and playback." But... But... The MPEG-LA, Apple, and Microsoft have been lying to us all this time about the safety of using H264 over WebM, with their supporters blindly parroting the party line? This surprises me greatly and deeply, and I dare say I have not seen this coming at all. Not at all. No sir. Not at all.

The fact that they seem to be attacking companies left and right using FRAND patents doesn't seem to have any effect on them.

Are these FRAND patents if Motorola isn't even a member in the relevant patent pool?

That is, by which promise did Motorola force itself to license these patents under FRAND terms?
