Legal "Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, began arguing its U.S. trade case that Android-based smartphones made by Motorola Mobility Holdings use technology derived from Microsoft inventions. In a trial that began today before the International Trade Commission in Washington, Microsoft accused Motorola Mobility of infringing seven of its patents and requested a halt to imports of certain Motorola phones. The ITC has the power to stop imports of products that violate U.S. patent rights." Hey at least these patent trolls ensure we got stuff to write about.
