Microsoft's Discovery of MP3's Dynamic Origins - Microsoft's Discovery of MP3's Dynamic Origins
Tue, March 20 2007 | 4:35PM | PermaLink Feedback?
When an intimidating giant and a heroic, yet smaller warrior do battle, all folktales and stories account for the warrior defying the odds to conquer the giant. While I, by no means, am suggesting that the giant is a menacing being, the story seems to hold true in modern-day times. In a very high-stakes battle which put yet another twist in the volatile subject of digital music, Microsoft, the international software giant, and Alcatel-Lucent, a telecommunications and computer technology company, butted heads in court to settle an MP3 file patent dispute. After three months in court, a San Diego court upheld Alcatel's claim that Microsoft unfairly infringed on its claim to the MP3 patent, resulting in 1.52 billion dollars changing hands.
