Microsoft is about to launch Windows Phone 7 and besides Marketing they also fight on the Patent front
Microsoft announced today that they have filed a patent infringement action against Motorola, Inc. In a statement of Microsoft's Horacio Gutierrez, corporate vice president and deputy general counsel of Intellectual Property and Licensing the company says that Motorola infringes on nine Microsoft patents in Android-based smartphones.

The patents in question relate to a range of functionality embodied in Motorola’s Android smartphones that are essential to the smartphone user experience, including synchronizing email, calendars and contacts, scheduling meetings, and notifying applications of changes in signal strength and battery power.
If Motorola is infringing on these features I would think that all other Android phone makers are too. Not sure why Microsoft is going after Motorola alone.
