Eolas files motion to enjoin IE | CNET

Eolas files motion to enjoin IE | CNET "Eolas Technologies on Monday filed a motion to permanently enjoin Microsoft's distribution of its Internet Explorer browser amid a flurry of court filings by both sides in the pivotal patent infringement case.
... the changes we rolled out for IE are modest and will not have significant impact on consumers or the Web community as a whole," Microsoft's Wallent said. "Based on that, the idea that we would pay more than $630 million to get rid of a single mouse click on a small fraction of Web pages is not something that we're entertaining."

Somehow I suspect these guys aren't going to get a lot of sympathy cards when their patent is thrown out.
