Microsoft is facing a lawsuit from a small Internet technology company that claims it has infringed a broad patent for Web browser technology.
Chicago-based Eolas Technologies claims it owns the patent on fundamental browser technology that makes plug-ins and applets possible and that Microsoft has infringed this with its various Web-enabled operating system and applications products.
Eolas wants to force the software giant to cease all future manufacturing, use and sale of infringing products and for unspecified damages.
The suit is far-reaching with the potential to hit any product that uses a system for accessing executable programs in Web pages.
