Submission Microsoft patent infringement suit tossed->

castrox writes: "Ars Technica reports on the just tossed verdict on the claimed Microsofts patent infrigement concerning MP3 compression, filed by Alcatel-Lucent. Quoting Ars:

A judge has overturned a jury's $1.52 billion award in a patent infringement lawsuit brought by Alcatel-Lucent against Microsoft. Ruling that Microsoft had not violated one of the two patents in question after all, Judge Rudi Brewster threw out the verdict and indicated that the second patent was on shaky ground as well.
The future of software patents, it seems, will be dominated by people in courtrooms."
