United States Poised to Lose Status as Top Innovator
Blog entry graphic

In my most recent post, I blathered on and on about how sorry I have been feeling for Microsoft in its ongoing litigation with i4i. It has seemed as though poor Microsoft was losing at every turn to the small Canadian software company that had the temerity to accuse it of patent infringement. i4i got a judgment for $240 million against Microsoft. Microsoft, unsurprisingly, felt upset about that. However, Microsoft – despite many court applications – has been unsuccessful at getting that judgment set aside or at proving the invalidity of i4i’s patent.

In late August, Microsoft applied to the United States Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari, which is Latin for “please, please, please take a look at everything and tell us we’re right and they’re wrong.”
