Import ban on some select Motorola Android devices
It’s been a few months since the ITC decided on banning select Motorola Android devices. While the ITC mentioned the likes of the Google-powered Atrix, Xoom, Droid 2, etc., the exclusion covers all Motorola devices that infringe on Microsoft’s patents for email-based meeting scheduling. Motorola is working hard to keep these devices in the hands of US consumers, because the ruling doesn’t include stock they already have.
Motorola has said:
In view of the ITC exclusion order which becomes effective Wednesday with respect to the single ActiveSync patent upheld in Microsoft’s ITC-744 proceeding, Motorola has taken proactive measures to ensure that our industry-leading smartphones remain available to consumers in the U.S. We respect the value of intellectual property and expect other companies to do the same.
Are you upset that this is happening to Motorola? Do you think that the email-based meeting scheduling is actually infringing on that patent? Let us know in the comments below!
