Microsoft, Motorola ask court to keep patent case details private
- USA: Monday, December 17 - 2012 at 00:50
Microsoft Corp and Google Inc.'s Motorola Mobility unit have requested a US federal judge to keep secret from the public various details from their recent trial concerning the value of technology patents and the two companies' attempts at a settlement, Reuters has reported. In addition, Motorola asked the judge to seal some documents relating to settlement negotiations between the two companies, arguing that keeping those details secret would encourage openness in future talks and make a settlement more likely. The two firms are preparing post-trial briefs to present to a judge as he decides the outcome of a week-long trial last month to establish what rates Microsoft should pay Motorola for use of standard, essential wireless technology used in its Xbox game console and other products.
