Microsoft faces lawsuit over Silverlight | Beyond Binary - A blog by Ina Fried - CNET News.com

Just a hunch, but if Gotuit's intellectual property protection is substantive, I wouldn't be surprised to see this trigger an acquisition -- by Microsoft or perhaps by Adobe ... or Google

Microsoft's latest legal headache is a suit from a little-known company called Gotuit Media, which charges elements of Silverlight infringe on the video metadata company's patented technology.

In a suit filed July 2 in San Francisco Federal Court, Gotuit charges Silverlight infringes on several of its patents and seeks an injunction against the software maker as well as damages and attorney's fees.
