Microsoft Appeals Eolas Decision
from the take-that dept
theodp writes "Citing the inventors' fraud on the USPTO, Microsoft filed a blistering brief asking the U.S. Court of Appeals to overturn the $565 million Eolas patent infringement judgment. The company said the district court erred in limiting evidence about the Viola browser, which Microsoft claimed in trial constitutes prior art. Interestingly, the W3C Patent Advisory Group - which included Microsoft's Associate General Counsel - did not see fit to mention the Viola prior art in its well-received request for a USPTO re-exam. "
