Microsoft Corporation was, yet again, defeated when the United States Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit upheld the trial’s court’s decision in favour of the Toronto based software company i4i Limited Partnership (i4i). The dispute between the parties arose when i4i brought a patent infringement action against Microsoft in 2009. At issue was i4i’s invention for editing XML, a computer markup language.
