Microsoft is to remove a feature from Internet Explorer that required users to activate certain interactive features on a website.
Microsoft agreed in August to pay $521m to settle the patent dispute.
"Microsoft has now licensed the technologies from Eolas, removing the 'click to activate' requirement in Internet Explorer," said Pete LePage, a senior product manager at Microsoft, on the company's IE Blog.
"Because of this, we are removing the 'click to activate' behaviour from Internet Explorer."
Microsoft plans to release the update by December, when users can download an optional Automatic Component Activation Preview.
The general public will receive the update by April 2008 through Automatic Update in Windows.
