An interesting article.

BBC News - Motorola wins Xbox and Windows 7 ban in Germany

"Motorola Mobility has been granted an injunction against the distribution of key Microsoft products in Germany.
The sales ban covers the Xbox 360 games console, Windows 7 system software, Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player.
It follows a ruling that Microsoft had infringed two patents necessary to offer H.264 video coding and playback.
A US court has banned Motorola from enforcing the action until it considers the matter next week."

It's also interesting that Motorola has been accused of abusing its Frand-commitment (a promise to licence innovations deemed critical to widely-used technologies under "fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory" terms.)
