Microsoft told not to sell few versions of its Word software


Microsoft said it will introduce the copies of Word 2007 and Office 2007 without the offending technology by the court-ordered deadline. Tuesday’s ruling upholds an earlier injunction against Microsoft that banned the technology giant from selling Word.
The ban was imposed by a Texas court in August after Toronto software firm i4i took Microsoft to court for stealing its patented technology for use in the software. The court had also granted US$290 million in damages to the Toronto firm.

Microsoft challenged the ruling in the US Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
Tuesday’s ruling by a three-judge bench comes into effect from January 11 next year, banning sale of a number of versions of Microsoft’s word-processing software.
