Submitted by jrlaw on Dec 23rd, 2009

A news report on WFAA.com gives the details of a recent court decision that has Microsoft under fire once again. The massive software company has been ordered to stop selling its hugely popular and widely used Microsoft Word products as of January 11, 2010. The issue with the products is that they infringe on a patent held by a Canadian software company known as i4i. In addition to the halt of sales, Microsoft has been ordered to pay the software company almost $290 million dollars in damages.
