Re: Don't know what to make of this
What I see happening is, Microsoft, if ruled against, will just buy the patent and keep it moving. It will be interesting to see what happens, considering they were granted a patent for the same idea. This doesn't mean that MS stole their idea, it just means that more than one person(s) thought of it. Since this company suing them never actually had a working product in all that time, it would be a little hard to prove that Microsoft actually stole their idea. The burden of proof is on them. Besides, MS was granted the patent, which to me indicates that there is a time frame for use or renewal of said patent. I'm no patent attorney but, that just seem to make since.
