Submission + - MS Nailed with $200M MS Word Patent Infringement

nandemoari writes: "Microsoft has been slapped by a heavy hand for including a Canadian company's technology in Microsoft Word. A Texas federal court recently decided that the Redmond-based firm infringed on Toronto-based i4i's XML-based patent. Unfortunately for Microsoft, on Wednesday a Texas judge agreed with i4i's complaint that MS violated the patent through its system for processing Word files via embedded codes that show instructions on how information is presented. Microsoft's not taking the $200 million ruling lying down. According to Microsoft spokesman David Bowermaster, the company will request that the court overturn the order."
