Microsoft has won another victory in a continuing and complex patent dispute with Google.
The latest spat hinges on whether technologies used in the Xbox console and Windows software were licensed on fair terms by Google-owned Motorola.
A US judge upheld the software giant's claims that Motorola had breached agreements to license its patent products at a reasonable rate.
Microsoft has been awarded around $15m (£9.6m) in damages.
"This is a landmark win for all who want products that are affordable and work well together," Microsoft said in a statement.Microsoft Scores Patent Victory Over Google's Motorola Relating To XBox [bbc.co.uk]
