An ITC judge rules Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox consoles violate Motorola Mobility's (MMI, GOOG) patents; the ruling is subject to commission review. An ITC ruling on whether Apple (AAPL) violated four Motorola patents has been delayed by a day. Unlike most other Android OEMs, Motorola has chosen to fight Microsoft's attempts to extract a large royalty on its Android shipments, leveraging its huge patent portfolio.

    I'm confused. Why does Microsoft get any royalties from sales of Android phones?
