Microsoft appeals against MS Word ban

Posted: August 23, 2009 in Tech

Microsoft has asked the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to review the injunction made against MS Word.

Microsoft was given 60 days to stop selling Microsoft Word in the US after successful legal action against the company in Texas by software company i4i.

I4i supplies Word XML authoring software and has insisted that Microsoft has infringed its 1998 patent which allows users to read XML programming language in order to customise document formats.
