+ - Microsoft Lost against Alcatel-Lucent

brain1 writes: Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/article/ousiv/idUSWEN46512 0070222) is reporting that Microsoft was hit with a $1.52 Billion patent suit damages. Looks like Microsoft lost even they licensed MP3 technology from Fraunhofer in Germany. This doesn't bode well for fighting software patents, but Microsoft seems to have been bitten by their own game.

This looks like a good time to switch to Ogg Vorbis!

That does not compute.
