Microsoft loses patent appeal - forced to withdraw Microsoft Wor (23/12/2009 07:59:53 PM)

If you haven't heard yet - Microsoft yet again has lost an appeal in regards to a "lowly used algorithm" present in Microsoft Word. As a result, Microsoft now have to withdraw all current versions of Microsoft Word and Office available for sale, and compensate the patent holder - l4i - $200,000,000USD for loss and damages. Quite a bit of damage there - worth a read.

I doubt I will be blogging before the new year (maybe on New Years Eve), so to all readers, have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
