Microsoft sues U.S. Customs

The U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington issued the import ban in May 2012 after deciding that Motorola Mobility devices infringed a Microsoft patent for a way mobile phones synchronize calendar events with other computers. Microsoft’s lawsuit, filed yesterday in Washington, says that order isn’t being enforced.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, after having secret meetings with Google, continued to let the Motorola Mobility mobile phones enter the country even though Google has done nothing to remove the feature at the heart of the ITC case, Microsoft said in the complaint.

    laws can be manipulated with right fees. so much for rule of law.

    more and more hypocrisy is showing. even the Samsung win over Apple at ITC show how decrepit the enforcement system is. ITC only answer is ban no matter what other court system have said that FRAND does not mean injunction.

    “Secret meetings”? Sounds like this deserves a criminal investigation.

    Microsoft is such a victim ! What a joke, they can’t make any money off of their own mobile devices so they want to hold hostage mobile devices or have them pay a high ransom, so tired if the bullshit
