Microsoft has turned down a settlement offer from Motorola, saying it was not offered in good faith, according to a Reuters report.
The settlement offer apparently covered several patents under dispute between the two companies, including those that could lead to import bans Microsoft’s Xbox gaming consoles and Motorola’s Android phones.
According to Reuters, Microsoft said Motorola asked for royalty payments far in excess of market rates. More details are here.
Microsoft and the now-Google-owned Motorola are battling in several courts worldwide over patent issues. They each have cases pending before the U.S. International Trade Commission, which determines whether patents have been violated and if so, whether import bans are called for.
