nevillethedevil's Journal: Microsoft Loses case Over Patents

Journal by nevillethedevil
The New York times has an article titled: MP3 Patents in Upheaval After Verdict. From the article:
Microsoft was ordered by a federal jury yesterday to pay $1.52 billion in a patent dispute over the MP3 format, the technology at the heart of the digital music boom. If upheld on appeal, it would be the largest patent judgment on record. The ruling, in Federal District Court in San Diego, was a victory for Alcatel-Lucent, the big networking equipment company. Its forebears include Bell Laboratories, which was involved in the development of MP3 almost two decades ago.
