U.S. Court To Give Microsoft Opportunity To Review I4i Patent Award [bloomberg.com]
The U.S. Supreme Court will consider making some patents more vulnerable to legal challenge, agreeing to hear Microsoft Corp.’s appeal in a case that forced changes in the company’s Word software and may cost it $300 million.

Microsoft, fighting a verdict won by closely held I4i LP, says the federal appeals court that handles patent cases is making it too hard for those accused of infringement to argue that a patent never should have been issued and is invalid.

Some are saying that if Microsoft prevails it would arguably be the biggest change to patent litigation in almost 30 years. This will be one to watch.
