Submission + - Microsoft looses patent fight for Word

EMB Numbers writes: Microsoft infringed U.S. Patent No. 5,787,499 on "document architecture and content."

Judge upholds $200,000,000 Verdict, adds $40 million for willful infringement, $37 million in interest, and $144,060 per day until the date of final judgment. Most importantly... Judge's injunction prohibits Microsoft from selling some Microsoft Word products.
