Microsoft phones face US import ban for patent infringement

Microsoft could be banned from importing a number of its smartphones into the U.S. after it was found guilty of patent infringement.

The software giant used wireless cellular technology owned by InterDigital without permission. U.S. International Trade Commission judge Theodore Essex found Microsoft guilty of infringing two patents owned by InterDigital, which reportedly cover technology that moderates a mobile phone’s power to reduce signal interference.
