Microsoft hit by $388 million patent suit

Posted on Thursday, April 09 2009 @ 18:48:21 CEST by


Uniloc has won a patent suit against Microsoft on Monday, a federal judge has ordered the software giant to pay the company $388 million in damages. The jury found that Windows and Office infringe on a security algorithm held by Uniloc.
Irvine, Calif.-based Uniloc makes software that prevents people from illegally installing software on multiple computers. Uniloc said Microsoft's Windows XP and some Office programs infringe on a related patent.

"They've been struggling for six years against Microsoft the giant, and finally, justice has prevailed," said Paul Hayes, Uniloc's attorney, who heads up intellectual property patent litigation at the Boston firm Mintz Levin.
Microsoft said it will appeal the decision in US District Court in Rhode Island.
