Microsoft Wins Eolas Appeal
Microsoft Wins Eolas Appeal: "Microsoft scored a victory in federal court yesterday when the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned a $521 million patent-infringement ruling against the company. The ruling was part of an Eolas Technologies and the University of California (UC) case that claimed that Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) violates a patent on technologies the two organizations developed. The court has vacated the decision and ordered the case to be retried in a lower court."
