U.S. ITC To Bar Some Motorola Phones After a Microsoft Patent Complaint


The U.S. International Trade Commission has determined that some Motorola Mobility smartphones infringe on a Microsoft patent, and will be barred from importation to the United States.

Following the typical procedure, the order by has been sent to U.S. President Barack Obama, who has 60 days to consider whether to overturn it for policy reasons.

"The Commission has issued a limited exclusion order directed to the infringing products of Motorola and has terminated the investigation," reads the U.S. ITC's report.

The order follows an investigation based on a complaint filed by Microsoft in November 20120. Microsoft's complaint alleged patent violations by Motorola Mobility's phones, and seeked to ban the importation and sales of certain mobile devices. The ITC order did not say which models of Motorola Mobility smartphone were affected but Microsoft has asked for the following devices to be stopped at the U.S. border: the Atrix, Backflip, Bravo, Charm, Cliq, Cliq 2, Cliq XT, Defy, Devour, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, Droid Pro, Droid X, Droid X2, Flipout, Flipside, Spice and the Xoom tablet.

The patented technology at issue makes it possible for users to generate meeting requests and schedule gatherings using their mobile devices.

"Although we are disappointed by the commission's ruling that certain Motorola Mobility products violated one patent, we look forward to reading the full opinion to understand its reasoning," the company said in an statement. "We will explore all options including appeal."

Last December, an ITC administrative law judge in December found that Motorola Mobility infringed on one Microsoft patent in making Android cellphones but did not infringe on six others.
