Microsoft Patent Victory

I find myself once again in the unusual position (for me) of cheering for Microsoft when it comes to an IP issue. One more of the many IP suits involving Microsoft has been settled, and it was determined by the court that Microsoft did not violate Hyperphase’s “patent”. The Judge granted Microsoft’s motion for dismissal. An earlier Judge on the case had a great sense of humor. I wish I could find more complete transcripts but there are some excerpts at the Corp Law Blog.
