Microsoft loses Word patent appeal

A U.S. federal appeals court has upheld a $290-million US judgment against Microsoft Corp. in a patent case launched by Toronto-based i4i Inc., and issued an injunction that will prevent the sale of its popular Word software.


The court injunction is set to go into effect Jan. 11. The injunction is only against U.S. sales of the program on or after that date, and does not affect copies of the programs sold before the injunction goes into effect, Microsoft noted in a release.
