i4i v. Microsoft

I’m sure that you’ve heard the news that Microsoft has been ordered to stop selling Word. First I would like to point out the irony that is inherent with this turn of the tables for Microsoft. It wasn’t that long ago that they released a threat to sue linux users. But it was the name of the suing party that had me checking the calendar to see if “April Fools” was in play. How perfect is it that the company suing Microsoft is named i4i? Perhaps for this case they should spell it eye for eye, talk about bad karma.

Getting past the headlines and spectacle let me cast my vote for No Software patents and then point you to the post on Groklaw, The i4i v. Microsoft Orders and Permanent Injunction.
