A German Court Orders Microsoft to stop selling 360s in Germany...wait WHAT!?
Do you recall the Post I made last month about a issue Microsoft is having with Motorola about Microsoft being accused on violating it's patents in the 360? And how it could have been banned from being sold in the US? Well apparently the original article I found that info out in this Patent War Case got the possible Console Ban confused due to it's nature.
It appears Microsoft has been settling this case out with Motorola in the US when it comes to Patents but in Germany a Judge has declared for Microsoft to stop selling it's 360s and for some strange reason even Microsoft Windows 7 PC's Because of the 360 Patent Violation. To make matters even more confusing The Courts in the US dealing in this case as well told Microsoft to keep selling the devices in Germany while this is being delt with.
Yes I know this whole situation in itself is confusing as hell especially the Banning of PC Systems of Microsoft Windows 7 in Germany...this was all about only one thing the 360 not two, at this point it really does look like Motorola as I feared in my original blog is the Patent Trolls around here because why would it also Ban PC's in a Country for Patent Violations.
Anyway are any of the g1s confused on this new development....cuz I sure as hell am!
This could effect people outside of Germany, if for some reason Microsoft is no longer allowed to sell its PC's and 360's in Germany based on Patent Violations...who's to say Motorola will go after other Countries to get these banned in their Countries....sense Other Companies lately have been in Patent Wars to ban their competitions product in other countries.
This does not affect me at all in any way shaped or performed. But funny if Germany don't have 360's at all. Germany has never been cool, like banning DooM in their country.
