Legal "The Supreme Court ruled against Microsoft on Thursday in its appeal of a record $290 million jury verdict for infringing a small Canadian software firm's patent. The justices unanimously upheld an appeals court's ruling that went against the world's largest software company in its legal battle with Toronto-based i4i Limited Partnership. The smaller company had argued that Microsoft Word had infringed its method for editing documents. Microsoft contended that i4i's patent was invalid."

innovation - outside the USA

At this rate we'll find software having a vibrant economy .. outside the USA.

I can imagine the rest of the world being the only safe place for software innovation, use and trade.

If its not careful the USA will become an innovation unfriendly zone.
