Microsoft Countersues Lucent over XBox 360 Patents
Categories: Patent Cases
Microsoft Corp. has filed a counter suit against Lucent Technologies Inc. in a dispute over Microsoft’s alleged misuse of patented technology in its Xbox 360 games console. Microsoft denies infringing Lucent’s patent and argues that it is invalid, in part, because Lucent failed to disclose “prior art” in its original patent application. Microsoft has also accused Lucent of infringing several Microsoft patents. Earlier, Lucent had filed suit against Microsoft, arguing that technology used in the Xbox 360 for decoding MPEG2 video files infringes on one of its patents.
