On Wednesday, a court in Mannheim, Germany ruled   that  Microsoft (NASDAQ : MSFT) violated  Motorola Mobility's patents, ordering the  software giant  to withdraw its Xbox 360 gaming consoles and Windows 7 operating system software from the German market. The court agreed with  Motorola's allegations of Microsoft  using its certain video-compression software in products like Windows 7 and Xbox, in a clear breach of  agreement.

The Mannheim case is latest in a series of multi-billion war being fought in court and outside by big names in smart phone manufacturing like Apple, Microsoft and Samsung which runs on Google's Android software.

However, the ruling will have little impact on Microsoft's European operations as the company  is  already in the process of  moving its European software distribution center to the Netherlands anticipating adverse judgments.
