Microsoft hit with $1.5 billion MP3 fine

Posted on Saturday, February 24 2007 @ 04:20:17 CET by

A San Diego jury ordered Microsoft to pay $1.5 billion to Alcatel-Lucent in a MP3 audio technology patent dispute:
In its verdict, the jury assessed damages based on each Windows PC sold since May 2003. The case could have broader implications, should Alcatel-Lucent pursue claims against other companies that use the widespread MP3 technology.

A jury has ordered Microsoft to cough up $1.5 billion in a case brought by Alcatel-Lucent alleging Windows infringes on patents related to MP3 audio technology.

The case could open the door for Alcatel-Lucent to go after other companies that use the widespread MP3 technology.

An Alcatel-Lucent representative praised the ruling.

"We made strong arguments supporting our view, and we're pleased with the court's decision," spokeswoman Mary Lou Ambrus said.
