Salesforce.com Sues Microsoft Over Cloud Software [businessweek.com]

Salesforce.com Inc. filed a patent- infringement lawsuit today against Microsoft Corp., escalating a fight between the two companies over the growing market for cloud-computing software.
Microsoft’s products such as .Net platform and SharePoint perform in a way that violates the Salesforce.com patents, and the “risk of infringement was either known or so obvious that it should have been known by Microsoft,” Salesforce.com said in the complaint.


The complaint is in response to a patent-infringement lawsuit Microsoft filed in May against Salesforce.com, which pits the world’s largest software maker against the biggest seller of Internet-based customer-management programs. Microsoft targeted Salesforce.com’s customer-relationship management software and sought a court order that would prevent the company from providing features that Microsoft claims it invented.
