Jury Awards $368 million to Alcatel-Lucent in Patent Case vs. Microsoft

A jury in a U.S. District Court in San Diego has ordered Microsoft to pay Alcatel-Lucent more than $368 million for infringing on two patents.
The jury found that Microsoft's Tablet PC operating system infringed on an Alcatel-Lucent patent relating to the control of a computer through a stylus, and that some Microsoft programs infringed on an Alcatel-Lucent patent relating to an automated form entry system. The jury also determined that Dell infringed the stylus patent and owed Alcatel-Lucent $51,000. http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
