Jury returns $1.52 billion verdict against Microsoft
A federal jury returned a $1.52 billion verdict against Microsoft Corp. Thursday in a dispute with Alcatel-Lucent over rights to the MP3 digital music technology -- reported to be the largest patent verdict in history.

Microsoft immediately announced plans to seek relief from the trial court and, if necessary, appeal the ruling. The trial took place in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, in San Diego.

"We are concerned that this decision opens the door for Alcatel-Lucent to pursue action against hundreds of other companies who purchased the rights to use MP3 technology from Fraunhofer, the industry-recognized rightful licensor," said Tom Burt, Microsoft corporate vice president and deputy general counsel, in a statement issued by the company. ...

"I never like[d] Bill Gates business practices or ideas"

Irrelevant; even secular lawyers understand this. I hope no court ever makes the mistake of empaneling you on a jury!

What is unclear to you about Lev. 19:15 or 1 Cor. 6:2-3? Microsoft should only be penalized for actual violations of the law.

Microsoft should be punished not for being successful, but how they became successful .

The EU doesn't pamper Microsoft

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/3563697.stm

A later article actually video clip said that Microsoft dropped its Media Player in its European packages.

I never like Bill Gates business practices or ideas long before there was an Internet. I like Linux because of this and for many people it an Open Office is an excellent FREE alternative to Windows stuff. Personally I like FreeBSD licensing scheme better, it is more pro-business. If it gets to be more functional as a desktop, I'll be pushing that.

Microsoft should pay if they indeed broke patent law, but not just because they're rich or successful, which is sinful spite, envy, or jealousy.

Jim likes Linux almost as much as he likes Israel, based on his past posts.

Yes, that's right. Automatically dismiss someone simply because they're "from the Linux crowd" (which by the way, you merely assumed without knowing factually). There are several good reasons to be less than thrilled with Microsoft, and to enjoy a bit of well-deserved comeuppance for unfair business practices and such which have allegedly generated said profitability. For the record, I am "from the Linux crowd," but I'm not completely anti-Microsoft (I use both; however, I am justifiably critical in ethical areas as I gain more information about the company). And, I want to give you a friendly invitation to at least investigate Linux and see what all the "fuss" is about before dismissing it out of hand. You might be surprised.

So why is it pleasing for Microsoft to be punished for something? Just because they happen to be successful?

Oh, you're from the Linux crowd.. should've known.

While it is pleasing to see Microsoft being punished for something, I would rather wish it was something other than mp3 patent infringement. Software patents have gone too far.

Microsoft should be open source like Linux.
