For Motorola's patent infrigement
ITC judge recommends Microsoft Xbox import ban in US for infringing on Motorola patents
Some bad news is coming out today from the States.
It appears that a judge has recommended banning the Xbox 360 in the country due to a patent infringement.

Here is an extract of the sentence:
This time it is not Microsoft who is holding the Banhammer, uh?It is recommended that the Commission enter a limited exclusion order against infringing Microsoft products. It is further recommended that the Commission issue a cease and desist order. Additionally, it is recommended that Microsoft be required to post a bond for importation of accused products during the Presidential review period,” stated Administrative Law Judge David P. Shaw in the public recommendation.
