The ITC grants Microsoft's (MSFT) motion to dismiss antitrust claims lobbed against it by Barnes & Noble (BKS) over its alleged "misuse" of patents relevant to Android. With the antitrust claims out of the way, Microsoft is free to pursue its patent infringement case against B&N. The odds are likely in Microsoft's favor, given the long list of Android vendors to have struck a deal with the company.
