Tech company Google filed a $1.9 billion lawsuit against the patent-holding company Microsoft over its patent on the company’s search engine.
The patent covers a feature that is currently not available on all Microsoft platforms.
Microsoft alleges that Google violated the terms of its license agreements, but the lawsuit seeks more than $1 Billion in damages.
The lawsuit is not expected to go anywhere soon, but Microsoft’s position is that the patent infringes on several patents Microsoft filed in 2010.
The patents cover the use of algorithms and the use by Google of those algorithms.
According to Microsoft, the infringement stems from a feature called the “Web search engine indexing” that Google uses.
That feature uses a “global search indexing system” to locate and index web pages based on the information that’s in the “global index.”
Google’s position that the feature infringes its patent is somewhat complicated.
The feature allows Google to make a “local search index,” or the Google search index, of search results, and then index that index in real time on Google’s servers.
Google’s patent is specifically designed to provide search results for webpages that are “remote from the local index.”
The patent, which was filed in 2009, says that a search engine must be able to index the content of the page without the need to know the content itself.
This is a way of ensuring that if someone were to create a page that would look like a page from a different source, it would not be indexed.
The patent also describes a feature, known as “global context indexing,” that allows a search page to be indexed without having to know where it comes from.
Google claims that the global context index, which Microsoft has called “Global Search Indexing,” “does not provide any meaningful benefit over indexing locally.”
Microsoft’s patent also states that the “indexing” is a search algorithm that is based on “information on the user’s computer, the Internet and the Web, including information about search results.”
Google argues that the Google indexing feature infringe on the patent.
“Google seeks to use its patents to try to impose monopoly power on the Internet,” Microsoft wrote in the filing.
Google has a very good track record of successfully suing companies for infringement.
Last year, Google won a $250 million verdict against Motorola Mobility over Motorola’s Android software.
In another patent infringement case, Microsoft won $300 million against Nokia over Nokia’s Android operating system.
Microsoft has also settled several patent lawsuits with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Microsoft has been a vocal opponent of Google, especially since the search engine company acquired Motorola Mobility in 2016.
Google sued Microsoft in 2016 over patents that it claimed Motorola had infringed.
Microsoft’s patent suit against Google is the latest in a string of patent cases that have involved Microsoft, and Microsoft’s legal team is also represented by former Microsoft attorney and current Google patent litigator Marc Fisher.
