i4i rebuts ‘each and every’ Microsoft Word defense

Canadian company certain it will win Sept. 23 appeal

Canadian company i4i, the plaintiff in a dispute with Microsoft over alleged patent infringement in Microsoft Word, fired the latest volley in the ongoing case by filing a responding brief yesterday with U.S. Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit.

The company’s chairman, Loudon Owen, said that “i4i’s brief refutes each and every one of the same weak defenses Microsoft repackages from the trial and raised on appeal.”

Owen added, “i4i is confident we will prevail on appeal. We believe the final judgment in favor of i4i, which included a finding of willful patent infringement by Microsoft and an injunction against Microsoft Word, was the correct decision.”

The appeal is scheduled to be heard Sept. 23 by the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington.

The responding brief from i4i comes less than a week after the U.S. Court of Appeals held that Microsoft can keep selling its Word software by granting a stay in a civil lawsuit .
