Microsoft 2007

(Best Syndication News) Microsoft has lost its appeal with i4i of Toronto Canada, which patented a feature that showed up in MS Word (Read what Microsoft said below). This case, along with others, raises questions about patent law; you don’t need to patent the code, but the idea. The Toronto company had placed a patent on a method of interacting with XML (Extensible Markup Language).

Microsoft lost the appeal. The D.C.-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit agreed with the Honorable Leonard Davis of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division. At that hearing i4i was awarded $290 million for infringement. The company also received a “permanent” injunction against Microsoft Corporation for “custom XML” in Word 2003 and Word 2007.
