Microsoft and Facebook have announced that they will continue to focus their patent lawsuits on companies that make the devices that they own.
The move comes after Microsoft won an injunction to stop Google from making the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, which it sells through Oculus VR.
Microsoft said that it will no longer sue companies that produce the hardware.
Microsoft is one of a number of tech companies that are suing the Oculus developer and hardware manufacturer.
In June, Microsoft won a preliminary injunction against Oculus.
Microsoft has also won preliminary injunctions against the Oculus platform, including a $500,000 award in July.
In an update Friday, Facebook said it will not file for patent protection against the makers of the Oculus headset.
Facebook will instead file a lawsuit against those who make the software, the company said.
Microsoft also announced that it is filing a patent infringement lawsuit against Oculus VR, the developers of the Rift headset.
