An Aye for an i4i
Looks like Microsoft will indeed be out a cool $290 million after a court, for the second time, upheld a ruling that Redmond owes i4i cash for infringing on an i4i XML patent.
The judgment shouldn't affect IT since the offending code has been taken out of Word 2003 and 2007, and won't make an appearance in Word 2010.
The ever-persistent Microsoft isn't giving up, and plans to appeal once again.
