|Google Ends Patent Claim With Microsoft Over Video Compression Technology|
| 12:49 pm on Jan 9, 2013 (gmt 0)|
|Google has ended a patent war with Microsoft over video compression technology used in the Xbox 360. |
The firm had also argued that Microsoft was using its wi-fi innovations.
Google has now asked the US International Trade Commission, which handles patent disputes, to withdraw both claims.
It had previously said in court that Microsoft should pay up to $4bn (£2.5bn) a year to use its connectivity and video coding patents.
