Google today officially withdrew its attempts to block some Microsoft products from the U.S. market. Google's Motorola unit was fighting Microsoft over a patent pertaining to Microsoft's XBox product. Microsoft did not want to pay Motorola's licensing terms for the patent, so Motorola (and Google) sought to block the product. Late last year, the U.S. Department of Justice said that it didn't think patent infringement claims should lead to product bans. Last week, the Federal Trade Commission settled its investigation into Google's alleged antitrust behavior. Last, the U.S. ITC also found that some of Motorola's patents could not be enforced against Microsoft. Google's move to drop its ITC complaint today is likely a direct result of its recent settlement with the FTC and the ITC's earlier decision. Other legal entanglements between Google and Microsoft are still ongoing.
