Both companies will win and lose battles in this fight. Recent Microsoft purchase of AOL patents suggest that Microsoft is feeling a bit more vulnerable as it finally (and unexpectedly) has to take on Google.

The current battle is at Germany. That already caused Microsoft to take the defensive move of relocating some of its European operation to Netherlands to reduce disruption to its services. That battle produce a biggest headline to date: XBox and Windows 7 banned in Germany.
