Why 60 days?
Seems that they should be stopping right away, or at least in a bit less time.
"I don't normally support Micro$haft in legal matters, but I actually hope they win this one..."
I can't imagine why you would hope for that. Microsoft have merely been hoisted on their own petard. Not only do they wholeheartedly endorse the idea of software patents, but they knowingly infringed on this one from the very start. Their attitude seems to be that software patents are great when Microsoft can use them to attack smaller companies (TomTom) but otherwise be ignored when MS want to copy someone elses product because MS can afford more lawyers than almost everyone else. I find this incredibly cynical attitude to be entirely despicable.
Personally, I hope they get burnt and burnt bad. Maybe then they might start considering changing their stance on the validity of software patents (although I doubt it)
"Gawd! It's so hard to come down on the Evil Empire's side."
Well don't then. Microsoft were a driving force behind software patenting. Just sit back and enjoy the schadenfreude!
