The Verge reports that the US International Trade Commission judge has ruled out that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 infringes four of Motorola’s patents. Many of the patents cover H.264 video encoding, which is a standard. In a statement, Microsoft said it “remains confident the Commission will ultimately rule in Microsoft’s favor in this case and that Motorola will be held to its promise to make its standard essential patents available on fair and reasonable terms.” The ruling is preliminary and subject to review by a full panel of ITC judges, so there will be little possible immediate impact.
