In order to help settle their bitter patent dispute, Motorola Mobility (GOOG) is proposing Microsoft (MSFT) pay it a $0.50 royalty for every copy of Windows containing Motorola's H.264 video encoding tech, in exchange for Motorola paying a $0.33 royalty on every smartphone it ships that supports Microsoft's ActiveSync software. Microsoft has dismissed the offer, and suggests Motorola is obligated to license its patents under FRAND terms. ITC injunctions (I, II) may be pending.
