An appeals court has granted Microsoft’s request to put off an injunction that could have forced it to stop selling its Microsoft Word software next month.
Bummers, huh? What happened? Back up to my link last month on The last word on Microsoft Word?
Microsoft had appealed a court decision from mid-August that gave it 60 days to stop selling Word products that allow users to create custom XML documents. The ruling, which also includes additional damages Microsoft must pay, stemmed from a patent infringement suit filed in 2007 by i4i. The court has ordered Microsoft to pay more than $290 million in damages in total.
Do you think they’ll settle?
