Word 2010 patent infringement case is impending. Word 2010 xml viewer is the possible solution to lack of xml support in certain parts of Word 2010
Microsoft Office application suite has been one of Microsoft’s major revenue making product suites and Microsoft Word is probably the most popular office application among the entire Office product line.
i4i Inc., a provider of XML-powered authoring and metadata content management solutions earlier filed a lawsuit against Microsoft regarding XML patent infringement and has finally got a legal judgement in their favor a couple of weeks back.
According to the given judgement, Microsoft has got only 60 days left, after which it will not have right to legally sell Microsoft Word in its existing form (that is, with XML support) and will also be liable to pay off $200 million of monetary compensation to i4i Inc.
Now, what this judgement means for the upcoming Microsoft Word 2010 ? Does it mean the exclusion of Microsoft Word from Microsoft Office 2010 (as rumored by many) ? The answer is NO.
Here we’ve listed out the possibilities that will almost nullify the repurcussions that the above judgement may ever have:
- If Microsoft wins a stay on the current verdict as part of the counter appeal
- If Microsoft settles the fuss outside the court with i4i Inc.
- If Microsoft excludes rarely used xml support from Microsoft Word 2010
MSWord addicts are not supposed to fear from this judgement as Microsoft Office 2010 will release as per schedule and Microsoft Word will certainly be a part of it.
