Microsoft Wins Ruling Forcing Change in Motorola Phones

Microsoft Corp. won a federal trade ruling that will force Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. to alter software on some of its Android-based mobile phones to keep bringing them into the U.S.

A U.S. International Trade Commission judge found that Motorola Mobility infringed a patent covering a program by Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft called ActiveSync, which lets users generate meeting requests among a group. Six other patents weren’t violated, the judge ruled.
