Microsoft suggests a flat fee while Motorola wants a cut in Xbox patent case

It would appear that one of the many titanic battles in the patent universe is coming to fisticuffs for Motorola and Microsoft as they duel between one another over how much the latter owes the former for patented technology used in the Xbox. The trial at hand was held on November 13th through the 20th down in the Western District of Washington in a federal court designed to settle on how much Microsoft owes Motorola for two of its standard, essential patents used in the Xbox gaming console as well as products such as Windows 7.
