Microsoft Sued Again for Patent Violation, Settles with Former Softie, as Before

Courtroom



Summary: Another Microsoft lawsuit starts; another case of Microsoft settling after being sued by former employees for patent violations

Microsoft is used to being sued and many ongoing patent ligation cases against Microsoft have not been concluded yet. That's over 50 in number.



Microsoft has just been sued again and so did its engaged-to-become-spouse, Bartz.

A case started in Texas against a number of defendants alleging that they had infringed a patent owned by a company called Webmap Technologies LLC.


Another new press release indicates that Microsoft has just settled with a former employee, who sued Microsoft for patent violation on behalf of the company he created, Ancora Technologies.

Ancora Technologies today announced that a settlement has been reached in the litigation between Ancora, Miki Mullor, and Microsoft, both in respect of the patent infringement claim and Microsoft's claims against Mullor, Ancora's founder and a former Microsoft employee.


As the Bilski case heats up, Microsoft takes centre stage. The headline from Bloomberg, for example, goes like this: "Microsoft Battles Novartis in High Court Patent Limits Dispute"

The U.S. Supreme Court today considers a patent dispute that will determine how much legal protection is afforded abstract business innovations and has drawn in companies including Microsoft Corp., Google Inc. and Novartis Corp.


We wrote about Novartis in [1, 2, 3]. Their patents cause unnecessary deaths.
