Supreme Court Treated Like Small Claims

Microsoft has lost, lost again and lost once more in its patent dispute with i4i over how Word implements XML. Microsoft has already removed the offending code, but the company just doesn't like to lose. Now it appears it will be appealing this puppy all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

As I understand it, the Supreme Court is not all compelled to hear the case, and I'd argue there are a number of things more important for the court to consider than a patent suit -- which is already basically resolved.

Should these justices give this appeal the time of day, and if not, what is the most important issue they should deal with? Legal advice welcome at [email protected]
