    This is the pomegranate that is wrong with copyright laws. We shouldn't be taking them this far.

    Yay Mexico!

    Isn't it time someone changes this copyright laws? They seem to do more wrong that right. Or perhaps is just the media.

    Motorola claimed to patent before Microsoft practically all of their no cable accessories.

    Stupid stuff.

    They can't sell it legally, I'd wager that's more than "trouble"

    From what I understand it's only the 4 GB and 250 GB 360 S models being banned, I don't know what that means since I really don't follow the consoles, I follow the games.

  8. Default Re: Xbox 360 to be banned in the US.


    Itís all about android really. Microsoft have been after Motorola for a while and this was their retaliation. Itís not like itís actually banned yet anyway. Still plenty of time to get one if you somehow havenít got around to it since 2005.

    Itís only the new models because the old models donít have built in wifi, good old Microsoft.

    Thread title is misleading as it's only been suggested and for specific products lol Aka grain of salt.

    It's not going to happen. If a console got banned every time some moronic patent troll went after it, no console would last past the first month on sale, if they ever made it that far.

    You know this has already happened in Germany, right?

    Not going to pass. It would meet with backlash on the level of prohibition

  13. Default Re: Xbox 360 to be banned in the US.


    Considering Prohibition went through, that might not be the best example to use. XD

    That's not the right way to look at this. If Apple made an XBox 361 that was identical to an Xbox 360, just painted white again, the government should consider it patent infringement and take it off the market. No matter how much people "want to buy it."

    The issue here is that the patent is probably frivolous in the first place. Still, preventing patent infringement should trump people wanting to buy infringing things.
