A U.S. district court has ruled Motorola Mobility (GOOG) can't obtain an injunction on the sale of Xbox and Windows products that use Motorola's standard-essential video codec patents. The odds of an injunction going through were very low to begin with. Motorola has been seeking a 2.25% royalty on the sale of infringing products, something Microsoft (MSFT) doesn't consider acceptable under FRAND licensing terms. The FTC has been investigating Motorola's use of standards-essential IP in legal battles.
