Microsoft Sues Salesforce.com Over Patents

Microsoft 1

WrongSizeGlass (838941) writes "Cnet is reporting that Microsoft is suing Salesforce.com claiming it infringes on nine patents. "Microsoft has been a leader and innovator in the software industry for decades and continues to invest billions of dollars each year in bringing great software products and services to market" "We have a responsibility to our customers, partners, and shareholders to safeguard that investment, and therefore cannot stand idly by when others infringe our IP rights." Two of the patents in question are a "system and method for providing and displaying a Web page having an embedded menu" and a "method and system for stacking toolbars in a computer display.""

I know it's been said many times... heck even I said it too many times to count... but, "displaying an html page without a context menu"? and stacking toolbars?

pisses me off
