Microsoft Prevails over AT&T in Patent Case

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Microsoft in patent case versus. AT&T. The court ruled that Microsoft does not royalty payments for software sales overseas where AT&T does not hold patents for the voice-processing technology in question.

"Today's Supreme Court decision is important for the entire information technology industry, adding clarity and balance to our patent system. This decision promotes a global patent system that works. The ruling ensures that U.S. courts, like courts elsewhere, can respect the patent laws of other countries, helping promote cooperation among patent systems worldwide."
