NTP Quickly Rubs Off On Visto
from the legal-eagles dept
Just a day after licensing NTP's push email patents, (and NTP taking a stake in the company), Visto is suing Microsoft for -- yep, you guessed it -- patent infringement. To be fair, though, Visto's sued on its own before, filing similar suit against rivals Seven and Smartner, but it sounds like it might be in a similar position to NTP in regards to the Patent Office, with some of its claims being rejected in an initial review by the USPTO. What's that saying about birds of a feather?
