Microsoft loses $200M jury verdict in ED Texas

On 20 May 09, a jury in ED Texas found that Microsoft had infringed claims of I4i's U.S. Patent No. 5,787,499.

ComputerWorld noted:

The technology that the court said infringes on the i4i patent enables custom XML tagging in Word 2003 and Word 2007, used mainly for people creating and modifying templates for Word documents.


The ruling is the second patent ruling to go against Microsoft in as many months. In April, Microsoft was ordered to pay $388 million to Uniloc, a company that makes antipiracy tools.
