Legal As most of you will know, Microsoft lost the patent lawsuit filed against the Redmond giant by i4i, while also losing the first appeal. Microsoft was forced to remove the infringing functionality from Word for US customers, but they also filed a second appeal. This appeal, too, has been lost.

"...If not, then Microsoft's last hope is the US Supreme Court."

I remember when a reference to the US Supreme Court had a bit of reverence to it. Now I see it as a politically tainted entity too easily swayed by corporate ideology. MS was clearly caught with its hand in the cookie jar, it will be interesting to see if the usual bullying and money tactics will work.
