A German court ruled on Wednesday that Microsoft infringed Motorola Mobility's patents in making its popular Xbox gaming consoles.
Judge Holger Kircher said Microsoft breached an agreement with Motorola, which is in the process of being bought by Google, by applying certain video-compression software in products including Windows 7 and the Xbox 360 videogame console.
In the ruling, the judge ordered Microsoft to remove its popular game console as well as its Windows 7 operating system software from the German market.
The ruling followed a similar decision last week
