Now Eolas Wants To Ban Microsoft From Distributing IE
from the shutting-down-the-internet dept
The folks at Eolas really seem to be getting cocky these days. They did win a half a billion dollar judgment, after all, saying that Microsoft infringed on their patent (though, now more evidence of prior art is showing up). Microsoft is appealing the ruling and making changes to the browser in case the ruling stands. However, that's not good enough for Eolas, who has now filed for an injunction that would permanently bar Microsoft from distributing IE. They'll still be able to distribute IE without the ability to do plugins (the annoying workaround they talked about earlier this week). Once again, it's nice to see how this "innovation" is helping to break the way most people use the internet.
