Will Xbox 360 Be Banned in the United States?

Several months ago, Microsoft filed suit against Motorola over Android-related patent infringement. Motorola, of course, counter-sued, claiming patent infringement on the Xbox 360. That suit was a little surprising, considering the companies tend to stick to like-minded infringement cases. Microsoft didn't think too much about it and let the courts get involved. Sadly for Microsoft, they have lost 4 of the 5 claims.

Both Motorola and the judge in the case have recommended that the International Trace Commission block all imports of the Xbox 360 into the US. Motorola offered a deal, giving Microsoft 33 cents for every Android phone they have sold, while charging Microsoft 2.25% of each Xbox 360 sold. Microsoft has declined this offer, leaving the Xbox 360 in jeopardy of import blocking.

So, why did Microsoft decline the offer? Hit the break to find out.
