A federal judge has ruled in favor of Microsoft (MSFT) in a patent case brought against the company by Motorola Mobility.
U.S. District Judge James Robart set royalty rates determining what would be a fair amount for Microsoft to pay Motorola Mobility for use of some of its patented technologies.
In the ruling, Microsoft was ordered to pay about a half-cent per unit for video-decoding technology and three and a half cents for wireless technology. According to Microsoft, that equates to about $1.8 million a year.Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Google (GOOG), had originally sought 2.25% of the retail price on Microsoft products. Microsoft said that would amount to the company paying Motorola about $4 billion a year for its use of its wireless and video-decoding technology. Microsoft had said $1.2 million annually would be a more reasonable amount to pay. The ruling ends the case filed by Motorola Mobility in November 2010.
