Patent Decision Overturned in Microsoft's Favor

Champagne all around for the Microsoft legal team. A federal judge this week overturned a great big, $388 million patent-infringement ruling against Microsoft. Apparently, Microsoft didn't infringe on Uniloc's patent, after all. Apparently, the original trial went on for six years before a jury slammed Microsoft with the punitive fine -- which a judge overturned on appeal in a matter of months. Weird how the system works sometimes, isn't it?
